(February 17, 2016) Louis Armstrong with Leon Thomas – The Creator Has A Master Plan (Peace)

From the 1970 album, Louis Armstrong and His Friends.  This was Armstrong’s last release before his death.  Bob Thiele at Flying Dutchman Records convinced Armstrong that it would be a good idea to put out a “friends” record for his 70th birthday. This tune is a duet with Leon Thomas on the Pharoah Sanders / Leon Thomas classic. The vocal chorus on “We Shall Overcome” and “Give Peace a Chance” include the likes of Miles Davis, Ornette Colman, Chico Hamilton, and Oliver Nelson.
