Instead of simply recreating Louis Armstrong performances Ken Mathieson's thoughtful and cleverly constructed new arrangements of tunes associated with the legendary trumpeter for his superb little band avoid simply re-treading old ground. He has added a guest, the hugely talented American trumpet player, Duke Heitger, to put his own exquisite stamp on them. As Just Jazz magazine commented “these are fine musicians…this line-up is so strong that there is never any doubt“. This is a joyful album, packed with good music and swings like mad.
