Hanging With Hyland: 50 Years of “Louis Armstrong and His Friends”

This week’s installment of “Hanging With Hyland” continues our 50th anniversary examination of the album Louis Armstrong and His Friends with our own Hyland Harris and Ricky Riccardi having a deep discussion about the album and about Armstrong’s role in the Civil Rights era.

In case you missed it, here are the links to Part 1 and Part 2 of our pieces on this album, with Part 3 due up on Friday. And here’s the link to our Virtual Exhibit on Louis and the Civil Rights Era, as referenced in the video above.

  1. Ahh… why’d ya have to bag on Frank Jr.??? He was good! And died young. Poor Jr. What a burden he had to carry. I saw him tear up the joint when he played Catalina’s in LA about 10 years ago. RIP Frank Jr.
