Louis Armstrong

Live in Australia 1964

Louis Armstrong Live in Australia 1964


The year is 1964. The world famous trumpet player and singer, Louis Armstrong, has just recorded Hello Dolly, a hit that brings the Beatles tumbling down from the Billboard music chart.

At 63, no one can say that "Satchmo" is past it. During a world tour he stops off in Australia for a memorable concert recorded in this document. Between the most well-known jazz standards, I left my heart in San Francisco, Sweet Georgia Brown, When The Saints Go Marching In, Billy Kyle on piano, Arvell Shaw on double bass, Danny Barcelone on drums, Trummy Young on trombone and Joe Dartensbourg on clarinet deliver fabulous solos, while singer Jewel Brown brings the house down alongside an imperial Satchmo on trumpet.
