Over the course of his long and illustrious career, Louis Armstrong visited Scandinavia on no less than nine occasions to both tour and record. Amongst the wealth of fabulous recording he produced on these visits, are six tracks that are said to be the world’s first live jazz recordings, recorded in Denmark and Sweden during the 1930s.
These, and many other recordings, some previously unreleased, have been meticulously restored for this 4-CD* Armstrong collector’s set.
