Louis Armstrong – Master of Jazz·Live in Chicago, 1962 {Storyville}[MFSL]


Review by Steven McDonald (allmusic.com)
A wonderful artifact, this is a prime slice of the latter-day Satchmo with a small all-stars band working through a relatively typical set. The performance ranges from solid to excellent, with the occasional odd flub (such as the uncertain return after Danny Barcelona’s first drum solo on “Basin Street Blues”), but the quality of the recording is the key element. The Mobile Fidelity gold CD edition adds three tracks to the Storyville original, and provides a clear, uncluttered sound field with excellent separation. The resulting album is a treat to hear.

Tracklist:
01. When it’s Sleepy Time Down South (02:44)
02. Indiana (04:21)
03. Give Me a Kiss to Build a Dream On (05:37)
