Louis Armstrong Birthday Broadcast: Listen!
Don’t miss WKCR annual 24-hour celebration of Louis Armstrong’s birthday anniverary, all day Monday August 4th. Every year it’s a must for all of us who love jazz and Louis Armstrong. Streaming live at wkcr.org.
Here’s another album from the yet-to-be-heard pile. Starting with side two on this one because I happen to know that side one was an attempt to take The Temptations into a new psychedelic era. So I’m easing into it.
I put this on for the first time tonight and I’m instantly in love with it. It’s really warm, for lack of a better term. Look at that cover and imagine sitting in a fire-lit room where time seems to move at about 85% of normal. That’s what this sounds like.
