Legendary Louis Armstrong is a budget comp of Louis Armstrong tunes from Sony. Ten tracks recorded in the '50s when Armstrong was at his absolute zenith in popularity. Don't look for any Hot Five or Hot Seven material here, but that's simply fine. These performances are not only solid, but some of them -- "Back O' Town Blues" for instance -- are revelatory. ~ Thom Jurek
