Electric Louis -- Last night I was having dinner with a friend. At one point, Louis Armstrong's version of Mack the Knife came on over the restaurant's music system. As she sat grooving to it in her chair, she asked why this kind of music wasn't used in electronic dance forms. It sounded like a listener suggestion to me, so here is Armstrong's version of W.C. Handy's Atlanta Blues treated with an electronic beat and bass.
