This recording was not only Louis Armstrong's finest record of the 1950s but one of the truly classic jazz sets. Their nearly nine-minute version of "St. Louis Blues" - with witty vocals, roaring Young trombone, and a couple of long majestic trumpet solos - is arguably the greatest version of the oft-recorded song.

Written-By – W. C. Handy. Written-By – W. Written-By – J. T. Brymn, W. Long Gone (From The Bowlin' Green). Written-By – C. Smith, W. The Memphis Blues (Or Mister Crump). Written-By – G. A. Norton, W. Louis Armstrong Plays . Handy ‎(LP, Album, Mono).

Pops' joyous, bawdy riff that opens this 1954 album goes straight back to the music of his youth: He famously cut "St. Louis Blues" with Bessie Smith in 1925, and his masterful vocal performances and thrilling trumpet improvisations on this set of songs by blues composer . Handy have the kind of authority that comes from having truly lived the music. His backing band provides crisp accompaniment; trombonist Trummy Young rips on the roaring "Lone Gone (From the Bowlin' Green). But Armstrong's malleable tone and magnetic presence command the spotlight.

I have a copy of JCL591 but the label on the record is "CSP / Columbia Special Products / (eye) A service of Columbia Records (eye)" This text is gold on a red background. Rest of the text is black. The outer jacket is the black and white photo version.
