Product Overview

This lovely assembled 23-track package collects the classic jazzman's most memorable vocal recordings from 1938 until 1967, and arranged in reverse chronological order, literally taking you back through the years as the tracks proceed. Kicking off with Armstrong's ubiquitous postumous hit "what A Wonderful World," recorded at one of his last sessions in 1967 just a few years before his death in 1971. The rest of the album is an enlightening trip through four decades of the classic New Orleans jazzman's music, focusing on Armstrong's uniquely gruff, but perennially toothy vocals that were a forerunner for artists as diverse as Howlin' Wolf and Tom Waits.

More impressive is his ability to rearrange standards of other, non-jazz genres and make them his own. His joyous duets with Ella Fitzgerald and Bing Cosby exhibit the fun he had singing with friends, and how effortlessly that translated to his recordings. This package features stunningly remastered sound (even the earliest cuts from 1938 are hiss free, full-bodied and remarkably clear), along with a classy 16-page booklet with rare photos and detailed session liner notes. It's not the final word on the prolific and multi-talented musician who some consider the most influential jazzman ever, but is an excellent overall portrait of Satchmo, covering numerous highlights in the career of this legendary American artist.
