Update On Links

March 18, 2013 - I'm now using various file sites with varying success. With over 200 albums listed here, obviously I cannot upload everything at once. So if you're dying to hear something, please post a comment on that particular post and I will move it up in the priority queue. Enjoy!

Stomp Off, Let's Go

If there's anyone more influential in jazz, I've not heard them. Louis Armstrong was simply the greatest. Which means that any release calling itself the "Ultimate Collection" is fated to overlook a sizable quantity of "must listen" work, and unsurprisingly three cds hardly comes close to filling the bill. Still, this set does encompass his career a little better than many that are released on lesser labels which go out of print or straight to the bargain bin. There is also an informative booklet with session information and photos. If you find this on sale, you won't be disappointed. Unlike the Dorsey-Sinatra set, I'm going to post all three discs at once. All titles are by either Louis Armstrong or Louis Armstrong and His Orchestra, except as where noted. Happy Holidays. Enjoy. + + +

I find that my listening tends to be cyclical and I usually track back to Louis this time of year! Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a great 2012!

Can't go wrong with Louis. Happy Holidays, whichever one celebrates (yesterday was Festivus, for the rest of us), and a very good New Year, to everyone.

Please, Mr. Volstead, first disc is Duke Ellington, can you fix it? Thanks

It should be okay now.
