Title - 'Honoring Louis Armstrong'
Artist - John Redmon & The Thomas J. Dawson, Jr. iOrchestra

For those not in the know, Honoring Louis Armstrong is a fantastic, 10-track musical tribute album featuring Louis Armstrong impressionist John Redmon and The Thomas J. Dawson, Jr. iOrchestra.

Redmon and Dawson have combined forces to pay homage to jazz legend and Rhythm & Blues Hall of Fame Inductee Louis Armstrong, a man of inescapable influence.

With Redmon sounding as close to Armstrong as anyone I have had the pleasure to musically behold before today, guest artists also include Linda Purl, Charles Buie, Committed, Phil & Brenda Nicholas and the Fresh Start Baptist Church Male Chorus of Fountain, Colorado.

1. 'Overture'
2. 'Blessed Assurance' (feat. Committed)
3. 'Just a Closer Walk with Thee (Medley)' (feat. Fresh Start Baptist Church Male Chorus)
4. 'Summertime' (feat. Linda Purl and Thomas J. Dawson, Jr.)
5. 'When the Saints (Medley)' (feat. Fresh Start Baptist Church Male Chorus)
6. 'O Danny Boy' (feat. Fresh Start Baptist Church Male Chorus)
7. 'Smile' (feat. Charles Buie)
8. 'Precious Lord (feat. Fresh Start Baptist Church Male Chorus, Phil & Brenda Nicholas)
9. 'What a Wonderful World'
10. 'Imagine'

Opening on the Martin Luther King-imbued 'Overture,' they back that up with the an immaculate “Satchmo” interpretation of 'Blessed Assurance' (feat. Committed), the trumpet-inspired 'Just a Closer Walk with Thee (Medley)' (feat. Fresh Start Baptist Church Male Chorus), and then we get the dulcetly beautiful 'Summertime' (feat. Linda Purl and Thomas J. Dawson, Jr.), and the spiritual magnificence of 'When the Saints (Medley)' (feat. Fresh Start Baptist Church Male Chorus).

Next up we get the near spoken word ambiance of 'O Danny Boy' (feat. Fresh Start Baptist Church Male Chorus), which is followed by 'Smile' (feat. Charles Buie), which was Armstrong's attempt at the style of Guy Lombardo, and then we get the uplifting Gospel delicacy 'Precious Lord' (feat. Fresh Start Baptist Church Male Chorus, Phil & Brenda Nicholas), and then the album rounds out with the awesome orchestrations of 'What a Wonderful World,' closing on John Lennon's, here spoken/sung classic, 'Imagine.'
