The Best of the Concord Band CD


Louis Armstrong

Appropriately entitled Satchmo, this arrangement is a musical tribute to Louis Armstrong, one of the greatest musicians jazz ever produced. He was the consummate entertainer, offering a personality and charm that captivated millions of people throughout the world. The arrangement begins with a short chorale treatment of When the Saints Go Marching In, followed by a drum solo introduction to Struttin’ With Some Barbecue. A short harmonic transition leads to Sleepy Time Down South. A Dixie combo is featured in Cornet Chop Suey. The arrangement closes with a rousing version of When the Saints Go Marching In ending with an instrumental “Oh Yeah!”

Recorded 1993/4/3, William Toland conducting.
