New Louis Armstrong European Live Recordings Out Soon: Dot Time Records will release Armstrong in Europe on CD/digital as part of its Legacy Series on September 27. This is the fourth Armstrong release of the series and it features the audio from two recordings of quintessential European performances by the great Louis Armstrong, never before commercially released. Tracks 1-9 on the LP feature audio from a 1948 performance from Armstrong and His All Stars’ run at the Nice Opera House in Paris, France, his first-ever performance at the Nice International Jazz Festival; tracks 10-16 feature the audio from a Titania Palast, Berlin, recording of Louis and His All Stars from 1952. The latter performance initially broadcasted on RIAS (Radio in the American Sector) will be released on the same day as a stunning vinyl package titled Armstrong in Germany.
