Armstrong, Louis - Birth of the All-Stars

Compiled and notated by the eminent broadcaster and writer Mike Pointon, this is the fifth in our highly acclaimed Portrait series. This is the first CD to trace the background to the touring band that sustained Armstrong's world-wide fame. 21 tracks covering 75 minutes of glorious music from the one and only Satchmo. To paraphrase Alistair Cooke - 'Louis Armstrong is dead - I don't have to believe it if I don't want to.' Review: This 1947/54 CD is precious silver, plugging the gap between Louis' 40s big band work and the 50s All Stars routines, a compilation like no other with many different musicians. (Just Jazz). 21 Tracks.
