This is a unique album containing live performances of many of Louis Armstrong’s most popular hits such as Mack the Knife, Blueberry Hill, C’est si Bon, La Vie en Rose, Give Me a Kiss to Build a Dream On and many more.
Louis Armstrong was a man who liked to please the folks and he saw no compromise in pleasing them with his highly individualistic singing, and his incomparable trumpet playing. He was a natural entertainer, by gift and by inclination. This album is truly representative of the man, as it presents all facets of his talent.

René LaFlamme, Transfer from Analog Master Tape to DSD 256
For the recordings on this album, the original 1⁄4” 15 ips NAB master tapes were played on a Nagra-T tape recorder, modified with high-end tube playback elec- tronics, wired from the playback head directly to a Telefunken EF806 tube, using OCC silver cable. The Nagra T, with its four direct drive motors, two pinch rollers and a tape tension head, has one of the best transports ever made. A custom- built carbon fiber head block and a head damping electronic system permit 2xHD FUSION to obtain a better resolution and 3D imaging.
The resulting signal is then transformed into high resolution formats by recording it in DSD11.2kHz using a Merging Technologies’ Horus A to D converter. All analog and digital cables that are used are state of the art. The 2xHD FUSION mastering system is powered by a super capacitor power supply, using a new technology that lowers the digital noise found in the lowest level of the spectrum. A vacuum tube NAGRA HDdac (DSD) is used as a reference digital playback converter in order to A and B with the original analog master tape, permitting the fusion of the warmth of analog with the refinement of digital.
2xHD was created by producer/studio owner André Perry and audiophile sound engineer René Laflamme.
