CD Reviews

THE ONE AND ONLY LOUIS
Bluebird | USA | 12/12/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Louis Armstrong is definitely in a class by himself. This CD represents his work in films for MGM from 1943-1965 (The Strip, Cabin in the Sky, Glory Alley, High Society, and When the Boys Meet the Girls.) Selections range from instrumentals to vocals and in addition to Louis you will find Bing Crosby and Jack Teagarden on a couple of tracks. Louis' scenes were the highlights of the mediocre film HIGH SOCIETY and all of his soundtrack performances from that film are here, including the delightful "Now You Has Jazz" with Bing. A highlight is his outtake performance of "Ain't It the Truth" from CABIN IN THE SKY. A must have for any Louis or jazz fan."
Great sounds from Satch
D. P. Bostaph | Murfreesboro, TN United States | 03/10/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Neither the Reader of this Review nor it's Author is an idiot, so nobody has to say that Louis Armstrong plays great Jazz. Too obvious for words.

But the sound reproduction on this CD is wonderful! MGM's recording people caught both Louis' voice and instrumental performances beautifully, perhaps better than anybody else, ever.

And the High Society Calypso can always make you smile.

So go ahead & buy this one, Jazzbo! You'll never regret it."
