Mal Sharpe's Big Money in Jazz Band

Firecracker Baby (self-released)



A host of Bay Area musicians get together at Yoshi's to honor Louis Armstrong on the day of his birth, from special guests John Coppola and Roger Glenn to vocal jazz mainstay Faye Carol. Adept musicianship, intermittent clips of Louie in conversation, and warm-hearted renditions of old Armstrong favorites make it a keeper.
