Saint Louis Blues" (or "St. Louis Blues") is a popular American song composed by W. C. Handy in the blues style and published in September 1914. It was one of the first blues songs to succeed as a pop song and remains a fundamental part of jazz musicians' repertoire. Louis Armstrong, Bing Crosby, Bessie Smith, Count Basie, Glenn Miller, Guy Lombardo, and the Boston Pops Orchestra are among the artists who have recorded it. The song has been called "the jazzman's Hamlet.

Louis Armstrong (1901–1971), nicknamed Satchmo or Pops, was an American trumpeter, composer, singer and occasional actor who was one of the most influential figures in jazz and in all of American popular music. His career spanned five decades, from the 1920s to the 1960s, and different eras in jazz.

Coming to prominence in the 1920s as an inventive trumpet and cornet player, Armstrong was a foundational influence in jazz, shifting the focus of the music from collective improvisation to solo performance.

But Armstrong's malleable tone and magnetic presence command the spotlight. Louis Armstrong Plays . Handy Louis Armstrong. Pops' joyous, bawdy riff that opens this 1954 album goes straight back to the music of his youth: He famously cut "St. Louis Blues" with Bessie Smith in 1925, and his masterful vocal performances and thrilling trumpet improvisations on this set of songs by blues composer . Handy have the kind of authority that comes from having truly lived the music. His backing band provides crisp accompaniment; trombonist Trummy Young rips on the roaring "Lone Gone (From the Bowlin' Green). But Armstrong's malleable tone and magnetic presence command the spotlight.

Armstrong, whose virtuosity and showmanship by the late 1920s could no longer be confined to a New Orleans jazz format, is heard supported by several different big bands (including Luis Russell's Orchestra) on these classic recordings. And while trombonist . Higginbotham, clarinetist Albert Nicholas, and drummer Lionel Hampton are in the supporting cast, they are completely overshadowed by the leader.

However, the album came at a hectic time for Armstrong – it was recorded on the same day as I’ve Got The World On A String and just 24 hours after he had finished his second album with Ella Fitzgerald.
