    If you like Pops, check out Bix Beiderbecke. His work with the Wolverine Orchestra and Jean Goldkette is great.

    I don't know... I feel like Bix is VERY different from Armstrong. And someone new to the music, I would pick something with more modern production values.

    Here's my recommendation:


    Wynton Marsalis, Mr. Jelly Lord

    New Orleans style music with modern production values, played by some very accomplished musicians.

    (Though you certainly can't go wrong with the musicians the others have posted here.)
