"Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen" is a traditional Negro spiritual. The song is also a popular jazz evergreen, and, many cover versions of it have been recorded. Probably the best known is by the great Louis Armstrong, a trumpet player and vocalist, who is a true "Master of Jazz".

Also arranged as a solo with piano accompaniment, and, as a solo with String Orchestra accompaniment. Please see my homepage.
