Louis Armstrong The Great Chicago Concert 1956 on 180g Import 3LP Set from Pure Pleasure

There has never been (nor will there ever be again) a musician so beloved all over the world as Louis Armstrong. Artistically, he was not only the single most influential source and inspiration for every pop-music instrumentalist and singer of his time and thereafter, but he was quite easily the greatest entertainer ever to step on the stage, musically or theatrically. And where Louis was concerned, there was no separation; he was as theatrical as he was musical.

The Great Chicago Concert 1956 documents just one of his countless concert appearances. It is unique and typical at the same time, for the evening began with a review of “50 years of Jazz” (which also paralled Armstrong’s life, for he and jazz were both born at the turn of the century), followed by a standard-issue Armstrong All Stars program.

Although his choice of selections would change slightly from one night to another, and then more so from one year to the next, certain elements remained constant. No matter how often a composition was repeated, Louis Armstrong gave his all every performance, no matter how many or few in the audience, and no matter if the decades of nearly non-stop touring had left him exhausted on a particular night.

Musicians:
Louis Armstrong - trumpet and vocals
Edmond Hall - clarinet and vocals
Billy Kyle - piano
Dale Jones - bass
Barrett Deems - drums
Velma Middleton - vocals
