Presentation

The Frémeaux & Associés Complete Series usually feature all the original and available phonographic recordings and the majority of existing radio documents for a comprehensive portrayal of the artist.
The Louis Armstrong series is an exception to the rule in that the selection of titles by this American wizard is certainly the most complete as published to this day but does not comprise all his recorded works.
Patrick Frémeaux

CHIMES BLUES 1923-1924



Jazz is the only music I love. My discovery of King Oliver was of all importance (...). The most beautiful disc I know is the OkeH version of Mabel's Dream. Armstrong's second voice behind King Oliver brings tears to my eyes. Jean-Christophe Averty

SUGAR FOOT STOMP 1924 - 1925



“Had Louis Armstrong, the inventor of swing and organizer of solo improvisation not existed, it is probable that jazz wouldn’t have developed in the same astonishing manner. Jazz reached its universal renown owing almost everything to Louis Armstrong.” André Hodeir

CORNET SHOP SUEY 1925-1926



“I still remember the Hot Five, with Lil and Louis Armstrong. It was really something else. Thanks to Louis I realized for the first time that jazz was a kind of music which was something else.” Nicholas Ray, film maker

WEST END BLUES 1926-1928



“In 1925, Armstrong plays faster and higher than any other trumpeter. With his supple and firm lips as well as his exceptional lung capacity, his attack is powerful and sharp, the vibrato is full and fiery, his playing bears a thousand different forms with a deep, radiant and voluminous sonority. This sonority is a world in itself. Apart from the soloist’s outlined phrases and with just one note, it comes over as significant, bringing a message from his heart.” Lucien Malson

TIGHT LIKE THIS 1928-1931



The irresistible ascension of the King of Jazz, from Chicago (1928) to Chicago (1931) with stop-overs at New York and Los Angeles and international recognition to boot. From Tight Like This to When It’s Sleepy Time Down South. Daniel Nevers

I GOTTA RIGHT TO SING THE BLUES - 1931-1933



“When I arrived in England and was welcomed everywhere, I was really surprised and couldn’t do everything. I couldn’t understand why all those people had come to hear me… Then I understood: they were record collectors!” (Louis ARMSTRONG – Swing that Music, 1937)

PUBLIC MELODY N°1 - 1937-1938



“The Lord made only one Louis Armstrong. It took him time, and he’d take even more time to make another one! Just one Louis is enough for this world.” Lionel HAMPTON

JEEPERS CREEPERS - 1938-1941



“As changing and colourful as life itself, the artistry of Louis Armstrong goes straight to the heart in its audacity and truthfulness (…) His dynamic lyricism, that of a genius, sends us far back into ourselves to where great mysteries are formed, mysteries of flame and passion.” Carlos de RADZITZKY

Patrick FREMEAUX



RADIO DAYS 1941-1944



Radio? Of course he’d heard of it; Armstrong had been playing with Fletcher Henderson in 1924-1925, hadn't he? It was even how the young Cootie Williams discovered him, sneaking a listen to him on short-wave radio in the evenings... In 1926, in Chicago, the Hot Five had done broadcasts even though the group only existed on records. And then there were programmes in Europe. In 1937 Louis even became a genuine radio-star on a national network. But when the war came, patriotism was the word, thanks to the AFN and the AFRS transcriptions... Daniel Nevers

Patrick FREMEAUX



JACK - ARMSTRONG BLUES - 1944-1945



“You can’t play nothing on trumpet that doesn’t come from him, not even modern shit. I can’t ever remember a time when he sounded bad. Never. Not even one time. He had great feeling up in his trumpet and he always played on the beat. I always just loved the way he played and sang.” Miles DAVIS

Patrick FREMEAUX



NEW ORLEANS 1946-1947




“What the Hollywood people do is never authentic. They always choose the actor whose looks and acting are on the other side of the world from the character whose life-story they’re telling.” Louis ARMSTRONG



A SONG WAS BORN - 1947



“It is safe to say that among performing artists of the 20th century, only Charlie Chaplin was as universally recognized as Louis Armstrong.” Dan MORGENSTERN, Director, Institute of Jazz Studies, Rutgers University



CONSTELLATION 48



“I like to say a few words, ha !... Ladies and gentlemen, I have the great pleasure to… telling you how much my boys and I have enjoyed our stay here in Nice… And I think this festival should become an institution, so that we can come back to your beautiful country every year. Thank you very very much…”. Louis ARMSTRONG, Nice (France), 28/02/1948



THE KING OF THE ZULUS 1948-1949



“I first met Louis in Chicago, just after he left King Oliver’s band (…) Nobody could copy him. Some were trying to play the trumpet like he does, but nothing happened… It’s so simple: when he sings a sad song you cry, and when he sings a happy song, you laugh.” Bing CROSBY
