Given his looming, mythic status in American history, it's easy to take Louis Armstrong for granted. As a result, there's a danger of overlooking Armstrong's music, or focusing on his more conventional output of the 1950s and '60s. In addition to his earliest sides, recorded with the Hot Fives and Sevens ensembles (which are must-owns for any true jazz fan), Armstrong laid down some excellent big band dates in the early '30s, which rank among his most vital and spirited recordings.
THE BIG BAND SIDES 1930-32 collects those sessions on a well-assembled and annotated two-disc set. Digitally remastered sound allows Satch's bright tone and flawless technique to pierce through the speakers, highlighting the crisp arrangements and tight, swinging playing of the bands. "Dinah," "I'll Be Glad When You're Dead, You Rascal You," "Them There Eyes," and "Lazy River" are only a few of the classics on this nicely put-together package.
