This compilation, which contains many selections from Armstrong's All Stars program (the All Stars were the Satch-fronted group that toured throughout the '50s and '60s performing a set of standards, show tunes, and Armstrong originals), is packed with favorites. Reaching back to his early catalogue, Armstrong delivers such '20s classics as "Jeeper's Creepers," "St. Louis Blues," and "When the Saints Go Marching In." Latter-day signature tunes such as "Hello Dolly" and "Mac the Knife" are given warm, familiar readings here. Fine performances from the band support the maestro's gruff, loveable vocal delivery and brilliant trumpet playing. Together, these all-time Armstrong hits are a fine sampler of the jazz legend's art.
