Mack the Knife didn't become a U.S. pop hit until the mid-late 1950s, when in fact it was briefly banned for it's violent subject matter. Armstrong's All-Stars adopted it around then, often as a concert closer, such was it's popularity.
Armstrong's first hit with it was in 1956. But check out the 1962 Paris concert double cd. The French rightly adored Armstrong's performance that night, and that of his band.
Barney Bigard is one of the masters of the jazz clarinet. His brilliant material spans from tradjazz (New Orleans style) to his memorable stint with Duke Ellington's best big bands to teaming up with Armstrong late in his career. Beautiful player all the way through.Source(s): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mack_the_knife

Barney may very well have recorded Mack the Knife, but I cannot find a reference to it on All Music.com. On Satchmo's version, Edmond Hall was the clarinetist.
Was it definitely Barney you heard doing this solo or was it Louis' band with Edmond?
