The traditional Louis Armstrong - the funky, dixieland influenced bandleader - is hard to spot on this album. Instead, you get a funky and eclectic collection of songs that works well together - not unlike a big pot 'o gumbo.

A fresh sort of setting for Clarence Gatemouth Brown – as the session focuses his bluesy talents on the music of Louis Jordan – a combination that comes across surprisingly well on this early 70s set! The tunes are mostly numbers from the 40s vintage of Jordan's big years of recording – but they're nicely recast here in a smaller combo mode, with more distinct touches of electric blues and jazz – thanks to Brown's work on guitar, the Hammond of Milt Buckner, and tenor of Arnett Cobb! Clarence takes the tunes in an easygoing vocal style that's maybe more his own than Jordan's – which is a great way to change up the tunes – and titles include "Ain't Just Alike A Woman", "Somebody Done Changed The Lock Of My Door", "Salt Pork West Virginia", "It's A Low Down Dirty Shame", and"Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby".

This 1965 Paris concert by Louis Armstrong is not all that different in content from many of his live dates recorded during the last 15 years of his life. His all-stars had changed somewhat, with clarinetist Eddie Shu replacing Edmond Hall, singer Jewel Brown taking the place of the late Velma Middleton, and trombonist Tyree Glenn replacing Trummy Young, but the dependable pianist Billy Kyle (who died the following year) is still on hand to keep the band in a familiar groove. Armstrong sticks to his dependable opener, "When It's Sleepy Time Down South," following it with a spirited "Back Home Again in Indiana." Jewel Brown is acceptable on the snappy "A Kiss to Build a Dream On," but butchers "Can't Help Lovin' That Man of Mine" with an overly dramatic and very pop-ish rendition…

"Louis" is a rock album written, composed and produced by Ziv Ravits. With "Louis", Ziv introduces an album, and a stage show, that is a genre of its own.

Ziv also uses the benefit of cutting edge sound technology - creating a special mix that could turn Louis into a land mark for the music of the 21st century, and a real treat for the modern music consumer.

The title of this compilation is a bit misleading, as Louis Armstrong only appears on seven of the CD's 20 tracks. All of them were recorded during a visit by the trumpeter to France in 1934 and were made on the sly, since he was under an exclusive contract to another label. The all-stars were primarily European musicians assembled for the session, though pianist Herman Chittison, a fellow American, makes his mark in "Super Tiger Rag," along with the leader's crisp, high-note solo. They compare favorably with some of Armstrong's later work back home with larger orchestras, but for the most part, the music is of minimal interest aside from his contributions…

Louis Armstrong was the first important soloist to emerge in jazz, and he became the most influential musician in the music's history. As a trumpet virtuoso, his playing, beginning with the 1920s studio recordings made with his Hot Five and Hot Seven ensembles, charted a future for jazz in highly imaginative, emotionally charged improvisation. For this, he is revered by jazz fans. But Armstrong also became an enduring figure in popular music, due to his distinctively phrased bass singing and engaging personality, which were on display in a series of vocal recordings and film roles.

Reissue with latest 2014 DSD remastering. Comes with liner notes. One of the key turning points of Louis Armstrong's career occurred at the Town Hall concert fully documented on this two-CD set, a reissue of the earlier two-LP release. Armstrong, who had been leading a big band for 18 years, was showcased with some musical friends who were all very complementary players (including trombonist Jack Teagarden, clarinetist Peanuts Hucko and cornetist Bobby Hackett), and the results were so exciting that Armstrong soon broke up his orchestra to form a similar all-star sextet.

By no means a bad album, Walker's major-label debut just wasn't quite as terrific as what directly preceded it. The studio atmosphere seems a bit slicker than before, and the songs are in several cases considerably longer than they need to be (generally in the five- to seven-minute range). A reworking of Howlin' Wolf's "Shake for Me" is the only familiar entry.
