How Music Changed

    Our story picks up in 1935, as Louis completes an extended working vacation in Europe. He returns to America only to find that his personal business is in a shambles, particularly as his management is concerned.

    Louis attempts to pick up the pieces, and finds himself with a new manager, on a new record label. Musically, he hits the cruise control button, which annoys critics but results in a catalog of consistently brilliant music.

    Songs covered today include;

    I’m In the Mood for Love

    Got a Bran’ New Suit

    Old Man Mose

    Thanks a Million

    Shoe Shine Boy


    I’m Putting All My Eggs in One Basket
