When LOUIS ARMSTRONG finally took his trumpet to the great jazz band in the sky in 1971,  it was the end of a legendary musical career that had lasted for almost 54 years. Louis was born on July 4 1900 in New Orleans and at the age of 17 he met the legendary jazz musician King Oliver who took the fledgling trumpet player under his wing and started him on the road to success. In 1922 Satchmo — as he became known —joined Oliver's band full-time in Chicago and the next few years saw him working with many of the jazz musicians to be found both in Chicago and New York City. A major break came in 1929 when Satchmo appeared in the Hot Chocolates revue in New York City.

Three years later he made his debut in Britain, appearing at the London Palladium and performing in front of King George V and Queen Mary. Satchmo made his first recording in 1923 as a member of King Oliver's Creole Jazz Band, and two years later he made his vocal recording debut with the Fletcher Henderson Orchestra. It was the beginning of one of the longest recording careers in the history of popular music. Over the decades Louis Armstrong recorded hundreds of titles. In 1964 he had his first million-selling single with Hello Dolly and four years later at the age of 68 he had another with What A Wonderful World.

The following year he returned to the UK to star at the top North of England venue Batley Variety Club. Louis Armstrong The Great Entertainer is an appropriate title for this collection which embraces favourites like Hello Dolly, What A Wonderful World and Cabaret with other standards like Blueberry Hill, Gone Fishin' and Lazy Bones. And one thing is certain, wherever Satchmo is now must be a happier place for his presence.

Louis Armstrong

Geboren am 4. 8. 1901 in New Orleans, gestorben am 6. 7. 1971 in New York. Mitglied als Trompeter in renommierten Bands, z. B. von Fletcher Henderson, und einer der Begründer des Scat-Gesangs. Louis Armstrong zählt zu den geachtetsten Jazz- Musikern überhaupt.

Mit ”Hello, Dolly” (1964) und ”What A Wonderful World” (1968 und 1988) gelangen ihm internationale Hits als Sänger. Der Filmschlager Kisses in der Nacht” (aus "Die Nacht vor der Premiere”) wurde am 23. 2. 1959 im Studio der Real-Film (heute: Studio Hamburg) in Hamburg-Wandsbek von Louis Armstrong (voc, tp) mit Peanuts Hucko (cl), Mort Herbert (b), Trummy Young (tb), Billy Kyle (p) und Danny Barcelona (dr) eingespielt. Bei der A-Seite handelt es sich um eine gekürzte Version, worauf der Labeltext hinweist. Zu haben auf der Bear-Family-CD "Fremde in der Nacht” (BCD 16313).

Eine Soundkostprobe des Titels gab es 1959 auf der Werbe-Single Fontana W 7007 ( FLC), von der dem Autor ein einseitig bespieltes Weißmuster vorliegt. Ansage durch die Tänzerin, Sängerin und Schauspielerin Marika Rökk. "Der treue Husar” war bereits 1956 als B-Seite erschienen (Philips 327 815- A: "Tiger Rag” - instr.)- damals noch mit dem hier fehlenden Labelvermerk ”Refraingesang: Louis Armstrong", der jedoch bestenfalls gurgelte. Textlich einzig identifizierbar sind durchgekaute Brocken wie “'Hassu gewussfi”, ”Oh, mussas sein.fi!” und das längst legendäre ”...in Schwarzenbek, in Schwarzenbek!” Dieser Ortsname war Louis Armstrong präsent geblieben, nachdem er die norddeutsche Kleinstadt an der B 207 auf Autofahrten von Hamburg nach Berlin passiert hatte. Diese Ausgabe gab es mit zwei unterschiedlichen schwarzen Labels: als „Normal”-Philips und als Philips Minigroove. "Der treue Husar” ist ferner auf der EP ”Take It, Satchl” (Philips 429 127 BE) enthalten.
