Feat. Johnny Dodds


This side was recorded in Chicago on June 16th 1926 with Louis Armstrong cornet & vocals, Kid Ory trombone, Johnny Dodds clarinet, Lil Hardin Armstrong piano, and Johnny St Cyr banjo.

*"Droppin' Shucks" was composed by Lil Hardin-Armstrong.

That old adage "what goes around comes around" is examined in song by Louis Armstrong's "Hot Five" through the use of corn shucks as a symbolic explanatory device.
