Because of that, Decca stepped in and didn't allow the recordins to be released until theirs had been on the market for Volume I certain period of time. Armstrong and the Dukes got their act together and recorded fresh material for a fantastic album in but this meeting flew under the radar for years. Thus, judged solely on itself, this recording features some fine, powerhouse playing by Gathering Flowers From The Hillside - Various - Blue Grass Special Armstrong.
But you can hear his memory trying to conjure up those phrases and then you can feel the execution slowing down tremendously since the project.
Like an aging fastball pitcher, Louis still has the knowhow to throw enough offspeed stuff to strike the batter out. In fact, for a longtime, I winced when I heard this stop-time solo until I learned to just listen to it on its own. And you know what? It's grown on me until I think it's pretty terrific, with lots of new ideas to make up for what old ideas he couldn't execute anymore.
Still, it's a different ballgame from those and versions. And the whole thing is over in 2 minutes and 15 seconds so it's like everyone just wanted to get it over with. Anyway, here it is: I Cornet Chop Suey - Louis Armstrong - The Hot Fives Louis ever performed "Cornet Chop Cornet Chop Suey - Louis Armstrong - The Hot Fives again after this recording there's an alternate from this session but it's very similar and I don't think worth sharing. I enjoy each of these versions but really, that first one, recorded 85 years ago this week, is the one that changed history.
The next song recorded that day, didn't exactly do that, but it's still worth remembering. Stay tuned for my next installment on "Oriental Strut. Sebastian said…. Thanks for this post about one of the true gems of the early jazz the version. But besides this, the Town Hall version is the real suprise. And every time I hear these recordings again, I'm more surprised about the quality and the style of this Armstrong unit which to me is somewhat different to nearly anything the All Stars did after the Boston Symphony concert.
Just the quartet numbers like 'Cornet Shop Suey' with Catlett, Haggart and the wonderful Dick Cary at the piano or interpretations of 'Pennies from Heaven', 'Sunny Side' or "Do you know what it means" resemble to the early long play recordings that the ones like Rex Stewart, Barney Bigard, George Wettling and others made during the second half of the 40s for minor labels, with more swing-oriented interpretations of jazz standards which in some way paved the way for Norman Granz' productions of the 50s.
It's a pity that Satchmo didn't record more in that vein and didn't make studio recordings in loose ensembles only with rhythm group or with sax and 2nd trumpet.
The Cornet Shop Suey version is gigantic, just like the Ain't misbehavin' version of the same concert, but even more astonishing - because he never recorded or played? Get Money - Da Monstar Mob - Da Lost Tapes [2004-2005] the new coda is very strong and energetic.

The Hot Five played music that was specifically arranged as opposed to the more freewheeling improvised passages of the earlier Hot Five.
A tentative movement toward the kind of fully arranged horn sections that would dominate swing music a decade later was starting to become fashionable, and this second Armstrong group embraced a rudimentary version of it, with Don Redman as arranger providing some written-out section parts.
Strong on clarinet and Robinson on trombone were not as strong soloists as Dodds and Cornet Chop Suey - Louis Armstrong - The Hot Fives had been with the earlier band, but Hines was more nearly Armstong's equal technically and creatively than any other in either band. Thus, these sessions resulted in some of the most important masterpieces of early jazz, of which " West End Blues " is arguably the best known.
