Description

Louis Armstrong's Hot Five and Hot Seven recordings of the 1920s announced to the world of Jazz - and music in general - that a new genius had arrived. His faultless technique was accompanied by a seemingly unlimited inventiveness. Such was the authority of his tone that he demanded to be heard. But by the time the last Hot Seven recordings were made, Armstrong must have been seeking new challenges, and these stunning Big Band sides are the result.

It can be convincingly argued that no understanding of Jazz can be complete without some knowledge of the Hot Fives and Sevens. Similarly, no-one can claim to know the work of Louis Armstrong unless they have heard these important tracks.

Reviews:

1. AllMusic - Stephen Cook
Following up the groundbreaking work he did with his Hot Fives and Sevens was going to difficult, but Louis Armstrong pulled it off with typical panache by way of these infectious big band vocal sides. Gone are Johnny Dodds' perfect-foil clarinet lines and the combo's sophisticated polyphony, replaced by Armstrong's template for 20th century popular song: raiding Tin Pan Alley, Armstrong loosened up many a stilted stage song to create a wealth of swinging pop gems. JSP's budget two-disc set provides 42 examples, in fact, with the added bonus of Satchmo's usual clarion-call trumpet work and in-the-pocket humor ("The Lonesome Road"). Immortalizing them for the jazz cannon, Armstrong almost single-handedly made standards out of "Star Dust," "I Surrender, Dear," "Memories of You," "Exactly Like You," and many others. Blessed with John R.T. Davies' top-drawer transfers, this Armstrong collection stands as one of the cornerstones of American popular culture.
