O’s Notes: The Wonderful World of Louis Armstrong is just that, a collection of some of his classic songs performed by his namesake star-studded band. Highlights include “St. Louis Blues” with Wycliffe Gordon (tb, vocals), Nicholas Payton (t, vocals) and Herlin Riley (d, vocals), “What A Wonderful World” with Dabels Crawford (p, B3) and Niki Harris (vocals), “The Peanut Vendor” with Wynton Marsalis (t), “I’ll Be Glad When You’re Dead” with Reginald Veal (b, vocals), and even with a rap dedication by Common on “Black and Blue”. This project is as close as you can get to bringing Satchamo into your listening room with high fidelity.
