A tribute to Louis Armstrong? Mined terrain. Usually. The respect, sometimes the reverence for his musical legacy is too great. With his powerful, earthy playing and outstanding technique, Armstrong has influenced jazz musicians to the present generation.

Armstrong was born 120 years ago and died 50 years ago. The members of the Martin Auer Quintet took these two round anniversaries as an opportunity to celebrate “Satchmo” in a way that is as loving as it is respectful Way to appreciate. With “Hot 5” they have succeeded in producing a great album in every respect, with which the band – 25 years after its founding – is giving itself a very special gift.
