Louis Armstrong and his All-Stars are captured in rare form during this live recording from 1956, which is finally make its vinyl debut with this audiophile-grade pressing. The album features a great collection of tunes which had become staples of Armstrong's live shows, including his perennial opener, "Indiana"; the crowd favorite, "Tiger Rag"; the always joyful, "When The Saints Go Marching In"; and the great title-track, "Basin Street Blues". Satch's frontline band at the time boasted the very distinctive sounds of trombonist Trummy Young and clarinetist Ed Hall. Pressed at Pallas Group in Germany.
