Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

By the time these recordings were made in 1927-28, Louis Armstrong had abandoned the darker sounding cornet in favor of the brasher, more brilliant tonality of the trumpet. The New Orleans ensemble effects so prominent in earlier Hot Five sessions were of secondary importance, as Armstrong's instrumental command ascended to dizzying heights. Pianist and soon-to-be ex-wife Lil Hardin's "Struttin with Some Barbecue" inspires the trumpeter to a soaring, brilliantly syncopated solo, while guitarist Lonnie Johnson's expressive blues playing inspires Louis to expressive new heights on "Hotter Than That" and "Savoy Blues." But it's the appearance of pianist Earl Hines on the June 27, 1928 recording session that marks a sea change in Armstrong's music. Here at last is an original thinker, with the chops, imagination, and daring to play with Louis at an Olympian level, beginning, appropriately enough, with their choruses on "Fireworks" and their dazzling exchanges on "Skip the Gutter." Hines' "A Monday Date" is a particular joy, from the humorous repartee (in which Louis tosses in a plug for his favorite local bootlegger) to Zutty Singleton's dancing spoons, to Hines's sprightly playing underneath Armstrong's vocals and the leader's punchy muted trumpet figures. --Chip Stern

Format: Audio CD
Like its two companion Volumes 1 and 2,this set follows the rapid evolution of Armstrong here in 1927-1928;the earlier part of this CD features the latter days of the original Hot 7 with "Struttin' With Some Barbeque" and "Ory's Creole Trombone" as stellar standouts,but it is first Armstrongs collaboration with early guitar ace Lonnie Johnson and thereafter the first sides with pianist Earl Hines that underscores the importance of collective chemistry in jazz,-both men are first-class musical minds and both push Armstrong on to previously unattained heights,-the call-and-response scat singing and guitar riffs of "Savoy Blues" are even surpassed by the almost symphonic complexity of the teamwork with Hines on "Fireworks". The low-fi sound (Which again I prefer to more recent reissues) cannot keep you away from the greatness of the jazz on this CD.If you already have Volumes 1 and 2 then GET THIS ONE!!!

Anyone who is serious about Louis Armstrong, and who is able to defend statements about his indispensable importance to the birth of jazz (if not of a distinctively "American" music), will need to return to the thrilling recordings that document his ascent to the uppermost place in music of the 20th century. Admittedly, I was a "convert" after reading Gunther Schuller's "Early Jazz" (a volume with the kind of detailed musical analysis that enabled me to appreciate Louis' playing as a time-resistant, ever vital art form). Still, I wasn't as familiar with Louis' musical triumphs as I previously thought--until hearing his assertive and powerful instrumental and vocal work on tunes like "Hotter Than That" (which Gary Giddins, in "Satchmo: The Genius of," characterizes as Louis' "finest vocal to date," with an "improbably complex scat chorus") and "Struttin' with Some Barbecue" (which I had heard the Marsalis family play before Louis' more authentic, and ultimately, exciting version. Giddins also offers some useful information about the first track on this collection, explaining why the 1927 recording was suppressed until 1940 (primarily because of the meaning of the acronym "S. O. L."). This collection also brings into sharper focus the playing of guitarist Lonnie Johnson, who is impressive both as a soloist and accompanist (the sole support for Louis' vocal) on "I'm Not Rough."

Writers like Schuller, Giddins and, most recently, Thomas Brothers (in "Louis Armstrong: Master of Modernism") are unanimous in their insistence that the music of Louis Armstrong is as timeless and inexhaustible as the music of Bach, Beethoven and Brahms. Although such assertions are unlikely to bring to Louis' music a larger or wider audience, if they win the respect of even a few unenlightened musicians (not excluding jazz players), they will have served their purpose.

“This Would Be Louis Armstrong’s Shining Hour!”
Now that Louis Armstrong had successfully achieved the turning point during his
rise to international fame that he did on The Hot Fives And Hot Sevens in 1927, he
again impressed the music world with this highly praised recorded session within a
year later that found him in the watershed moment of his creative mastery with true
satisfying results. Released in 1928 in it’s 78 set- or a set of separate singles, The
Hot Fives And Sevens found Armstrong taking his remarkable trumpet virtuosity to
well-advanced heights in swinging artistry that even became an energetic and high
octane full-fledged defining moment that would even help lead indirectly toward the
development of swing in the next decade and Bebop two decades later. Beginning
with the superb opening track S.O.L. Blues, the fantastic multidimensional track set
proceeds with full force on other timeless hits, like Gully Low Blues, the humourous
That’s When I Come Back To You, Ory’s Creole Trombone, The Last Time—this is
not to be confused with The Rolling Stones classic, Got No Blues, Hotter Than Hot,
the original version of Struttin’ With Some Barbecue, Savoy Blues, Skip The Gutter
and the final track Don’t Jive Me. On the third volume edition of The Hot Fives And
Sevens, Armstrong is featured alongside three groups as The Hot Sevens features
the brilliant clarinetist Johnny Dodds, Lil’ Armstrong at the piano, session drummer
Baby Dodds and banjoist Johnny St. Cyr, while nine of the greatest sides welcome
back Kid Ory.
