Wow, what a great box set this is.
Just imagine, Louis Armstrong is one of the most influential musicians of popular music of all time and never is there a complete carreer-spanning box set released, until now!
10 CD's of which 8 are filled with the best commercial recorded and issued music in the best quality ever, one CD of rare and unreleased recordings and one CD is filled with an amazing interview by Mr. Dan Morgenstern in 1965.
If Mr. Armstrong is new to you, this is the one and only set which will let you discover all the secrets of Louis Armstrong's music! If you are an old fan, buy it too. The package is completed with an outstanding hardcover book and in the suitcase you will find a couple of hand written music sheets. Man, what an enjoyment. I played every CD several times before i went on to the next. The quality of each CD still trills me so much when i play it.
My tubes are "red hot". Every aspect of the musical path of Louis Armstrong is used in this box set. All his collaborations with other artists e.g. Ella Fitzgerald, Mills Brothers, Louis Jordan, Oscar Peterson and so on is taken care off.
This kind of great great box sets only comes once in a while. Don't wait! Buy it, it's a bargain!.You will fall in love (again) with Louis Armstrong!
