We return to a box set and a record filled with music from my dad’s favorite trumpet player, and we’re going to hear him sing every song. It comes from the first of 12 box sets in the Franklin Mint collection, the greatest jazz recordings of all time. And this musician has the first two records all to himself. So get ready to hear the man once billed as the world’s greatest trumpeter…by his wife…in Volume 113: Louis THE Jazz Masterpiece Part 2.
