Notes

When on June 28, 1928, Louis Armstrong unleashed the spectacular cascading phrases of the introduction of West End Blues, he established the general stylistic direction of jazz for several decades to come. Beyond that, this performance also made clear that jazz could never again revert to being solely an entertainment or folk music.

Featured performances by Louis Armstrong and His Hot Five, His Hot Seven, and His Orchestra.
