Louis Armstrong Plays W.C. Handy

Louis Armstrong Plays W.C. Handy

The excellence of Louis’ band is so high and so consistent that every man deserves commendation for his part in making this remarkably fine record. Trummy Young particularly should be singled out for his driving solos and for the way he 'boots' Louis in the final ensembles. The way I feel about this record can be summed up in this way: When I die, I want people to say, “That’s the guy that if it hadn’t been for him and Louis Armstrong and W. C. Handy, there wouldn’t have been that great record, Louis Armstrong Plays W. C. Handy.” (excerpt from the sleeve notes by George Avakian)
