While this record is indeed Louis Armstrong, and therefore better than 98% of the music available out there, it is only of marginal interest when considered within the specific context of Louis Armstrong's incredible and revoluitionary career. The disc is only 31 minutes long, which in the age of CDs is unforgivable. This is a great record for those with a superficial interest in Satchmo, especially those who want to have "It's a Wonderful World" in their collection, but not for anyone interested in exploring Armstrong's unmatched capabilities as a true jazz virtuoso. Most of the tunes here are overproduced and highly orchestrated. Still, it is Louis Armstrong...

I love this album. It is great to listen to late on summer afternoons - lazy Sunday evening music. Louis recorded many albums during the 60's and those are the recordings I recommend. They are, of course, much higher in quality than the recordings made earlier from the 20's on. My favorite tracks on this album are "What A Wonderful World" and a rousing Dixieland Jazz version of "Cabaret". But all of the tracks are wonderful. I highly recommend it. This is one of his best albums.

unfortuanatly i couln't make it to new orleans to celebrate the great one's birth. but he will always be in my heart. just grab a nice glass of lemonade and chill out in your front portch to some of the most timeless music ever recorded. i could die a painful death and if louis was playing it would make the pain go away. he truly had a vision like no other.

You could say he does not have a good voice. But it is a great voice. He is so filled with life, with feeling with joy .It just overflows. The playing is of course incomparable. He is one of those few greats who is universally loved.

It is not only that he sings 'what a wonderful world' he makes all of us feel it is a wonderful world.

I love this CD. My Father in law would sing this to my tiny twins while in the hospital & then onto when they came home & everyday he would hear it on the radio & just ring our phones & let it play thru the speakers. My Babies would be Fussy or crying & as soon as i turn this song on you would hear nothing absolutely nothing!!! After searching for the cd we found it & was given to him for a christmas gift however he didn't get to hear it he passed away on christmas day morning so unfotunately now that cd has been put! We all miss him dearly & know that he is in a better place & is watching over us right now!!!

Let's face it, at the time of these recordings Satchmo's glorious trumpet was all but silent and, although his voice was still highly expressive and emotional, it has lost some of its rhythmical versatility.

The music is still more than pleasant, with the ammount of jazz diminishing with the diminishing of Satchmo's unique performing power. It simply seems unreasonable and biased to give five stars to this cd when you compare it with, for instance, Satchmo's work in the 50's ("Satch plays Fats"!) or with the Hot Five and Hot Seven recordings of his golden early days.
