In 2018 John Redmon and Thomas J. Dawson, Jr. teamed up to record a fresh and new jazzy version of What a Wonderful World arranged by Dawson. Next thing you know they have recorded a whole album Honoring Louis Armstrong.
The record is a beautiful tribute and a musical feast of memories and classic songs. Great music!
