A 'Wonderful' Tribute To Louis On Vinyl LP!
Featuring Wynton Marsalis, Common & More!
Includes A Previously Unknown Louis Armstrong & The All Stars Track!

Michael Fremer Rated 9/11 Music, 9/11 Sonics!

The Wonderful World Of Louis Armstrong All Stars are the cream of the crop of current New Orleans musicians, paying tribute to the musician who started it all in the Crescent City. Comprised of new arrangements and recordings of music associated with Louis by a rotating cast of key New Orleans players - including guest features from Wynton Marsalis, Common, and more - this release features a previously unknown Louis Armstrong And The All Stars track.

...the musicians, all well grounded in both traditional and contemporary jazz had a rollicking good time with these tunes, all of which most of you will be well familiar including the overused 'What A Wonderful World', which manages to sound fresh here. I decided to wait to review the vinyl (of course) and glad I did! While the CD sounds good, the record cut at Sterling by Joe Nino-Hernes absolutely creams the CD. I don't see how anything comparing the two could think otherwise. This, despite the fact that it's digitally sourced. I brought the LP to the launch of SME's Model 60 and it floored all listeners who were more floored to learn it was digital sourced but of course the key is a great studio, the best microphones and a notably talented engineer... this record is highly recommended for both music and sound.
