  • So much has been said about Louis Armstrong's groundbreaking recordings with his Hot Five and Hot Seven ensembles that to add more is to risk overstating the obvious. Suffice it to say that this four-disc box set, which collects all the recordings Armstrong made with both groups between 1925 and 1929, is of inestimable historical and musical importance. Everything about the music, from the taut, sassy interplay of the musicians, to Satchmo's dazzling chops on the cornet, to his extemporaneous scatting (the first recorded instance of what would become a jazz technique), is a revelation. The contents of the set, in structure and in spirit, is the nucleus of the entire jazz movement, and the sumptuous packaging, excellent sound, and detailed notes make it a cornerstone for any self-respecting music collection.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (9/14/00, p.174) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...Documents the crucial early steps of Armstrong's journey....[with] his knack for generating soaring melodies, his ability to make his enthusiasm for everything he played feel contagious...and the order in which he got things done..."

Entertainment Weekly (12/29/00, p.140) - Ranked #1 in EW's Top 3 Jazz Albums of 2000 - "...Utterly indispensable..."

CMJ (8/28/00, p.24) - "...Spectacular....the music has been remastered [and] adjusted so that the material plays at the same pitch it was originally recorded....A quality package of some of jazz's most important recordings."

JazzTimes (10/00, pp.77-8) - "...The Rosetta Stone of jazz....We witness Armstrong transforming jazz from attractive folk music performed by collectives into art music energized by the creative power of one man's intuitive ability to make it swing..."

Vibe (10/00, p.176) - 3.5 records of 5 - "...Reveals why Armstrong was jazz's first superstar. The versatile arrangements, brilliant songwriting, exquisite hornplay, and passionate vocal delivery on this set laid the foundation for modern music..."

Mojo (Publisher) (11/00, p.106) - "...He redefined what was possible in improvised jazz melody and jazz singing. These sides are to jazz what Chaucer is to literature..."
