Impresario extraordinaire George Wein, the catalyst behind the Newport Jazz Festival, was (and still is) the perfect matchmaker in deciding upon who would entertain in this glorious New England setting. He sought to present major jazz artists either with their own recognizable groups, bringing together a musical reunion or the pairing of like-minded artists on the same bill.
It's no wonder then that during those early days of the Festival, Wein decided to feature the man who as famed disc jockey Fred Robbins had remarked, "…shaped the entire course of jazz", Louis Armstrong. In celebration of this great yearly ceremony which is observing its 60th anniversary this year, Mosaic Records is proud to present on high quality 180-gram vinyl unissued performances of Armstrong during those early years at Newport.
