The Music of Lil Hardin Armstrong

This album i did for Bob Wilber was a true joy. Great band with Doc Cheatum and Buddy Tate on some tracks and great material. After the album i did a tour in Switzerland with Lilette check out her musical history on “Jazz Speak”. Also check out this arrangement Bob did on “Hotter Than That” where he took Louies original scat solo from the 1920s note for note and arranged it for 4 horns what a thrill for me to play this. Listen to the ensemble in the middle of the song which is Louie’s scat and can you believe how far ahead he was in every way !!
