This Hackett album, made in tribute to his idol Louis Armstrong (and obviously recorded after "Hello Dolly" became a huge hit), is somewhat unusual. Marshall Brown's arrangements are a bit modernistic for the concept, soprano saxophonist Steve Lacy (who would soon move permanently to Europe and become a key member of the avant-garde) gets one of his few opportunities to play in a Dixielandish session and this set of Armstrong compositions contain many obscurities. Not all of the music is successful (and none eclipse Satch's original versions) but, due to the many surprises, this is worth searching for.
