9780810840737: The Young Louis Armstrong on Records: A Critical Survey of the Early Recordings, 1923-1928 (Studies in Jazz)

Comprehensive chronological survey and analysis of every recording on which Louis Armstrong played during the period 1923 to 1928. Armstrong's immense impact on the evolution of jazz is found primarily in these early recordings, and Brooks's close examination of this period is important, as much of this influence becomes obscured by later recordings. Glossary, bibliography, and title index.

About the Author:

Edward Brooks, currently a freelance writer, has written for the BBC and other magazines. He is also the author of The Bessie Smith Companion and Influence and Assimilation in Louis Armstrong's Cornet and Trumpet World..

Review:

Analyzes, in great depth, all of Louis Armstrong's recordings from the earliest with King Oliver up until 1928. (New Orleans Music)

...this is the sort of monograph that gets me excited because it's a measure of how much jazz has come to be accepted as a discipline for serious study and analysis....If you have a pretty healthy holding of Armstrong's records throughout 1923-1928, this book is fun and provocative to have at your side as you comb through familiar and unfamiliar titles. (American University Radio)

Sit down with your favorite early Armstrong recordings and follow along with Brooks's very detailed studies of every recording from this time period, and you may well think you've died and gone to heaven. Brooks has obviously devoted an enormous amount of time and energy to this project, and the fact that he's obviously a quite cultured gentleman makes the reading all the more rewarding. (Cadence)
