Since he studied with Segovia and played with Django Reinhardt, one might expect the best from Charlie Byrd, and indeed over the years he won innumerable jazz polls. He brought the acoustic guitar back into jazz and used classical techniques in his jazz playing. He became famous with the bossa nova albums that he recorded with Stan Getz, and in the face of their success one sometimes forgot that he was an effective but never flashy jazz soloist too. This album is dedicated to music associated with Louis Armstrong. It was Byrd's last recording session before he died in December, 1999 and it was an unusual departure from the trio setting that he used so often. He added trumpeter Joe Wilder, one of the most accomplished trumpeters in any field, to take the role of Armstrong, although there is no attempt to evoke Louis's style, and added a saxophone and piano. "Struttin' With Some Barbecue" is the only Armstrong composition here, and Byrd was more concerned to reflect Louis's later years with "Kiss To Build A Dream On", "A Child Is Born" and, remembering the triumphant sessions with Ella Fitzgerald, "Autumn In New York".--Steve Voce

As usual with Concord recordings the engineering is excellent with great positioning of instruments in the soundstage.

This final recording by the master is interesting in that he unusually adds a trumpet to the ensemble - great stuff!

Regard Byrd with respect. 14 Jun 2000
By Do Whan Kim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is an outstanding recording that captures Byrd doing some of his best stuff. This cd sound is transparent. And the hard and tendor are coexisting. Recording is filled with intense and amazing solos and improvisation, fascinating harmonic changes. Charlie Byrd in his later years at his best! Regard Byrd with respect.

"Charlie was a true original - unique musical vision" 29 Jan 2001
By J. Lovins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Concord Jazz presents one of the true great jazz musicians of our time, Charlie Byrd in his final studio recording - "For Louis", having the greatest respect for "Satchmo Armstrong" this album was conceived and dedicated.
Charlie and his love for the guitar was influenced by Andreas Segovia and Charlie Christian, but it was in Brazil he discovered his love for the emerging "bossa nova" movement. Recorded with the great saxophonist Stan Getz the big hit - "Desafinado" in 1962 and the bossa nova wave arrived in North America.
Byrd recorded for Concord in the mid '70s to the '90s, holds the distinction as the artist with the longest consecutive history with the label, over twenty-five years - here are just a few titles "Blue Byrd" (1978), "Sugarloaf Suite" (1979), "Brazilville" (1981), "Isn't It Romantic" (1984), "Tango" (1985), "It's A Wonderful World" (1988), "Du Hot Club De Concord" (1995), "Great Guitars 2" (1995), "My Inspiration: Music of Brazil" (1999) and this current release with the tasteful, low-key and ingratiatingly melodic style Charlie is noted for.
The entire album is a HIGHLIGHT, as Charlie celebrates Louis Armstrong we say thank you, for the indelible contribution and the introduction of both classical guitar and Brazilian influences, which created a whole new musical blueprint for us to follow...spin this CD, sit back and just listen to GREAT JAZZ - Charlie Byrd style!
