Format: Audio CD
C'est Ci Bon literally means that it's so good, and this box set is better than good! This chronicles 86 of Armstrong's biggest hits from 1940-1950. All with a 48-page booklet and extensive liner notes and at a very affordable price---even new---to boot! Every jazz lover should have this in his or her collection. Yes, okay some of the live songs are a bit too long. But you need to hear the live versions of "Muskrat Ramble" and "Boff-Boff" (love the drum solo in the middle!). And he actually improves on Duke Ellington's "C-Jam Blues" (unbelievable but true). Those songs, along with his versions of "Black and Blue", "Perdido Street Blues", and "St. James Infirmary", make this set worth every penny!

Of course, when you have this many songs there's bound to be a few missteps. But only very few! There's a few standards that I find corny ("Since I fell For You" for example). Also, I never realized how lame the English lyrics to "La Vie En Rose" are! However, somehow Louis himself can record a standard and it'll usually sound far better than any other version. He will either almost always sing it in a way that gives an edge to the trite lyrics he's singing, or he'll turn it into a kick-butt insturmental (witness "Body and Soul" or "Tea For Two"). And while Louis was never a technically a great singer in the traditional sense, his singing by this time had greatly improved over his earlier days (although I love the early days too). Though great singing doesn't always make a great song, witness "Cherry". I have the biggest problem with this song because it isn't jazz. It's more barber-shop harmony. But I quibble. This is an excellent box set!

This gets an A-plus! It's a must-have if you love traditional jazz!

The box is a steal and a deal. Impeccably produced. Even if you have the material in another form it doesn't hurt to have another collection so you can hear the music in a different ordeer.
