Glenn Zottola – “Hotter Than That”

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.
