TAS Rated 4/5 Music, 4/5 Sonics in the May/June 2020 Issue of The Absolute Sound!

Dot Time Records is excited to bring you Louis Armstrong's music from a historical show in Europe after WWII. Live In Germany is from a Postwar Berlin show in 1952 and includes Trummy Young, Cozy Cole and the return of Arvel Shaw.

...this record sounds much younger than its age. Armstrong and his band, including the wonderful clarinetist Bob McCracken and vocalist Velma Middleton, crackle with joy and energy and the tart humor that made the bandleader's toothy, Buddha-like smile feel entirely appropriate.
-Robert Ham, Paste Magazine
Timeless and charming, this vinyl-only release is a must for Armstrong completists.
-Bill Milkowski, The Absolute Sound, May/June 2020, Music 4/5, Sonics 4/5
