I wanted to post this in honor of “pops” Louis Armstrong’s birthday today. I did an album with Bob Wilber of all Lil Hardin Armstrong music. Bob arranged Louie’s 1920s Scat solo note for note on this song. This could be a whole course in jazz. He was so advanced harmonically and rhythmically as you can hear on the ensemble in the middle of the song. I never played this solo before the session and it blew me away. I included this track on my recent Anthology. Louie was my first mentor when I was a kid my dad knew him and his influence carried me through my entire career.
