You have excellent taste in music :). I listened to all of these songs and love them. They're added to my music collection for sure. How old are you? You seem to be quite keen on the older stuff like myself, but I'm not that old(er).

"Dream a Little Dream of Me"

Definitely my favorite, too.
Read a bio on him. Fascinating life. Great smile. Great musician.
.
His income while in the U.S. was Mafia controlled. They demanded 50% of his take in every performance, and they booked every performance--in the U.S.
.
He lived in a humble home on the South Side of Chgo.(as I recall) and was a showman until the end.

"Mack the Knife" was great, but Ella stole that one PERIOD

Unique voice and style. I have two of his cds. One is ragtime and the other a mix of all genres. I like music of many styles and historical periods. Nothing to do with age.

I like ragtime. You're right, nothing to do with age. I was just curious because not many people my age appreciates that sound or genre. Not many know much about it actually.

Big loss to music when he passed away.

Cocaine mentioned "ragtime" and that--of course-- brings to mind Armstrong's contemporary, Scott Joplin. Funny, Louis will live forever in the annals of music, but Joplin--an outstanding musician is all but forgotten. Joplin, by the way, wrote several musicals for Blacks--with an eye to Black advancement. They got exactly nowhere.
