Recorded 12 January 1988
Louis Armstrong was my first mentor and inspriration and this album i did for Bob Wilber was a true joy. Great band and great material. 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. Listen to the ensemble in the middle of the song after the tenor solo and can you believe how far ahead Louie was in every way rhythmically , harmonically and we are talking 1920s here. True genius Wow !!
