Personnel: Louis Armstrong (vocals, trumpet); Ella Fitzgerald (vocals); Perry Botkin, Bud Scott (guitar); Kid Ory, Tyree Glenn (trombone); Billy Kyle (piano); Red Callender, Arvell Shaw (bass instrument); Barrett Deems (drums).
This extensive compilation of vocal tracks from the latter part of Louis Armstrong's career features many of his most popular performances, including the 1960s hits "Hello Dolly" and "What a Wonderful World," and his wonderfully relaxed duet with Bing Crosby on "Gone Fishin'." However, even on these more commercially slanted songs, the trumpeter's legendary musical skill is apparent--his soaring solo on "Dolly" effortlessly cruises the instrument's upper registers, and his vocal interpretation of "Mack the Knife" is a masterpiece of jazz singing.
