Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong devoted his life to "the cause of happiness," as he once put it, giving the gift of joy every time he put his trumpet to his lips. Since his passing, his music has become synonymous with the holiday season.
For the very first time, Louis Wishes You A Cool Yule presents Armstrong's holiday recordings as a cohesive body of work, marking his first-ever official Christmas album. Louis Wishes You A Cool Yule features nearly the entirety of Armstrong's holiday output and includes a previously unheard recording of Louis reading "A Visit from St. Nicholas," with fellow New Orleans icon Sullivan Fortner providing a gorgeous musical underbed.
