Arvell Shaw and the Louis Armstrong Legacy – A Tribute to Satchmo



Louis Armstrong’s stalwart bass player, Arvell Shaw lead this alumni band for several years after the Master’s departure. This performance was recorded live at “Highlights in Jazz” in 1991, as part of New York City’s longest running Jazz Concert Series. Jazz critic Joe Clee said of this performance, “Arvell Shaw’s Armstrong Legacy came so close to sounding like the Louis Armstrong All Stars that it was almost scary!” Featured here are Arvell himself on bass and vocals, Byron Stripling, trumpet and vocals, Joey “G-Clef” Cavaseno on clarinet, of Illinois Jacquet fame, Dennis Wilson of Count Basie fame, as well as pianist Bross Townsend, and drummer Ray Mosca.
