A life devoted to the blues - Todor Todorovic, nicknamed "Toscho," has been doing that for more than 30 years. The captain of the Blues Company has steered his weatherproof vessel with great care through all the trends of the music market. Thankfully, the style is not new but the familiar mixture of crisp Chicago Blues with furious guitar solos, emotionally moving ballads, a touch of soul, serious jazz grooves, funk and the poignant interjections of the Fabulous BC Horns.
Reissue with latest 2014 DSD remastering. Comes with liner notes. One of the key turning points of Louis Armstrong's career occurred at the Town Hall concert fully documented on this two-CD set, a reissue of the earlier two-LP release. Armstrong, who had been leading a big band for 18 years, was showcased with some musical friends who were all very complementary players (including trombonist Jack Teagarden, clarinetist Peanuts Hucko and cornetist Bobby Hackett), and the results were so exciting that Armstrong soon broke up his orchestra to form a similar all-star sextet.
