Louis Armstrong
"Town Hall Concert Plus" (Vinyl)

Your influence must be pretty large if Time Magazine will name you one of "100 Most Important People."  That's since time began, mind you, not just 100 most important Americans.  So Mr. Armstrong pulled a position alongside Genghis Kahn and Johannes Kepler.  Well done.

This live recording was made April 24, 1947 - which is the "Town Hall" portion of the recording.  The other six songs on this record were selected from Louis' catalog as ambassadors of his prodigious output.

I think it's impossible to listen to this music and remain in a gloomy mood.  There is nothing but joy and sunshine when the tunes are up.
