Song Of The Day – 1/17/11

Song Of The Day – “Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans” by Louis Armstrong

By the time Armstrong committed this song to wax in 1946, he was already a veteran of the music industry for twenty years and you can hear it in his mellowed, more measured tone. That’s not to say that his¬†performance lacked the trademark humor and playfulness we’ve all come to love¬†and expect from him, but his singing and playing displayed a newfound maturity in this song. Here we have Louis with His Dixieland Seven featuring Kid Ory on trombone, Barney Bigard on clarinet, Charlie Beal on piano, Bud Scott on guitar, Red Callender on bass and Minor Hall on drums.
