Description

Louis Armstrong Legacy Series – Collectors Edition – Vol 4

Louis Armstrong Live in Europe – Collector’s Edition, is the 4th and final Volume 4 of the Louis Armstrong Legacy Series. Louis Armstrong Live in Europe is a two-disc set featuring two recordings of quintessential European performances by the great Louis Armstrong which were recovered from the archives of the Louis Armstrong House Museum.  On the first disc, tracks 1-9 feature the audio from a 1948 performance recorded from Louis Armstrong and His All Stars’ run at the Nice Opera House in Paris.  This historical concert marked Armstrong’s performance at the first ever Nice International Jazz Festival.  Tracks 10-16 feature the audio from a Titania Palast, Berlin recording of Louis and his All Stars which was initially broadcasted on RIAS (Radio in the American Sector). Disc two contains bonustracks from both concerts, plus an interview with Armstrong in Berlin. The release features exclusive packaging and a 20-page booklet written by Ricky Riccardi – Director of Research Collections for the Louis Armstrong House Museum and author of best selling book “What A Wonderful World.” These booklets also contain rare photo material held in the Louis Armstrong collection.

The Nice Opera House performance features a 46 year old Louis Armstrong in his musical prime, with Jack Teagarden on trombone and vocals, Barney Bigard on clarinet, Earl “Fatha” Hines on piano, Arvell Shaw on bass, and Sid Catlett on drums.  Armstrong’s band in 1952, features Trummy Young on trombone, Bob McCracken on clarinet and vocals, Marty Napoleon on piano, Arvell Shaw on bass, Cozy Cole on drums and Velma Middleton on vocals.  Both European performances demonstrate Armstrong’s stunning musicality, expert showmanship and ferocious leadership.
