Undoubtedly the father of jazz, Louis Armstrong continues to inspire musicians both young and old. On this unique three-disc 2001 Verve release, we are treated to a wonderful range of tunes from the Armstrong songbook. Original recordings are heard here as performed by various Armstrong-led ensembles from the 1950's. These cuts document Pops' return to his Dixieland roots "way down south" in the great city of New Orleans.
In addition to fine performances by Armstrong and his band (featuring the likes of Jack Teagarden, Barney Bigard, Sy Oliver, and Sid Catlett among others), we are treated to lengthy song introductions by Armstrong himself. Armstrong's informative and anecdotal introductions serve to educate listeners about the rich history and chronological importance of this American art form. Highlights on A MUSICAL AUTOBIOGRAPHY include the earthy Bessie Smith ballad "Reckless Blues" and Armstrong's own theme song, "When it's Sleepy Time Down South."
