Newstalgia Downbeat - Louis Armstrong - Live At Basin Street - 1955

Newstalgia Downbeat featuring Louis Armstrong, live from Basin Street in New York - May 28, 1955.

<strong>Satchmo knocks one out of the park.</strong>


The great Louis Armstrong tonight, recorded live at Basin Street in New York on May 28, 1956 as part of the weekly NBC Radio Series All Start Parade Of Bands.

Not too much to add other than this probably hasn't been reissued anywhere and may or may not have made the circles of radio collectors of live Jazz.

In any event, it's here and you get to enjoy it.
