How great that this TV-show has been released, finally! Absolutely sensational. It's great to see and hear old Satch surrounded by a fine band made up of long time serving members like Trummy Young, Arvell Shaw and Billy Kyle as well as newcomers Joe Darensbourg (whom Armstrong wanted to have in his band for many years), Danny Barcelona (joining in 1958 to stay until the end) and singer Jewel Brown. What is less sensational is the fact that the liner notes are full of mistakes. First of all this show was taped in Sidney, March 1963!, not 1964. The All Stars embarked on this tour on March 9th 1963 and they appeared in Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Korea and Japan. Louis returned to Australia one more time after that late in 1964 when both Trummy and Joe Darensbourg were no longer with the band having been replaced by "Big Chief" Moore and Eddie Shu. This particular band seen in this DVD recorded "Hello Dolly" on December 3rd 1963, months after this tour. "Dolly" appeared on the Billboard charts eight weeks later, to remain there for a total of 22 weeks and knocking the Beatles ("Do You Want To Know A Secret") off the No. 1 spot in May 1964. Arvell Shaw did not spend 25 years with the band. He joined Armstrongs big band in 1946 and stayed with him when the All Stars where formed in 1947. He left for short periods in 1951 and 1953 and stayed on until mid 1956. He rejoined prior to this tour, left again in April 1965 and played Armstrongs last concerts in 1970/1971. It is mentioned that Trummy Young retired in 1964. This is absolute nonsense! Trummy reluctantly left Armstrong in early January 1964 (having joined in September 1952) since his wife gave him an ultimatum. He then played locally in Honolulu at the Sheraton Waikiki and other big hotels yet returning to the national and international jazz scene until his death in 1984 - but he did not retire. Louis Armstrong, his musicians and girl singers through all these years are so important, their musical output is immortal and they worked so hard...Billy Kyle even died on the road in 1966...their story has to be told right, always.
