Like all Jazz musicians, I've always enjoyed Louis Armstrong's
lyrical and rhythmic playing. In my teaching, I use Louis to show how
simple lines with few notes can produce something extra-ordinary and
I've transcribed Lous Armstrong's first chorus on Lillian Hardin
Armstrong's composition "Hotter Than That". It's available on the
Smithsonian Collection of Classic Jazz and was originally recorded in
1927 by his Hot Five Group.
I've created a BIAB file, and find it works well with the PG Music
Style J_DIXIE2.STY. I'll put the file in a folder called Armstrong in
the File section. Hope you enjoy it and find it useful in your
learning. If anyone else has transcribed some of his work, please put
it in this folder.

what a solo! Including those memorable 4 bars from bar 17 ...
played by hundreds of trumpeters since 1927 but still inspiring!!
I'll put one of mine 'Come Back Sweet Papa' in the Armstrong file ...
it follows the Hot 5 song structure but only has the lead lines at the
cheers and beers
