(Louis Armstrong & His Orchestra – Basin Street Blues)

Final cut of the ‘legends’ and it’s down to ‘Gate’ to close the show. Just like to say that such is the quality, (and quantity), from the twolegends that this selection could last a year !! The Cats featured over the last two weeks are an inspiration and deserve all the accolades that have been written and spoken about them over the last 100 years…

Today’s cut is the first of his many recordings of the legendary ‘Basin Street Blues’ recorded in Chicago 1928 on a special day for themusicologist, (December 4th), one of my favourite Satchelmouth cuts.. featuring two other legendary musicologists Earl Hines and Zutty Singleton.
