The photos from these sessions in the 1960s will give the fans a chance to witness some rare moments of Louie playing and also relaxing with the Dukes. SRI Jazz’s Shelly Liebowitz selected “New Orleans” as the track best to show off these wonderful images. Having worked with Satchmo himself, Liebowitz was thrilled with these never before seen photos. “I only had the great fortune to work with him a couple of times. His warmth and charm were only exceeded by tremendous talent. He had to be the coolest dude ever with that big smile and the hankie in his hand....these recordings highlight Satch in all his glory with the white boys he loved to play Dixieland with. We are very proud to be able to release ‘Lost Treasures’ by Louie & The Dukes” Fans will not want to miss out on the surprise ending in “New Orleans” of a rare shot of Louie Armstrong.
