"Swing Low Sweet Satchmo" is an unusual album in the Louis Armstrong canon - this collection of gospel songs, spirituals and homilies was the only religious album this determinedly secular musician recorded.
Backed by a gospel vocal group led by the celebrated jazz arranger Sy Oliver, Armstrong performs a variety of religious-themed favorites, including "Ezekiel Saw De Wheel" and "Didn't it Rain". There's also an affecting version of the traditional spiritual "Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child".
