What a lovely CD. Louis Armstrong, a man with one of the most distinctive voices on the planet, works his way through 16 well-known ballads (nothing here ever goes greatly up tempo, backed by one of the greatest jazz pianists (Peterson) and his trio - of all time. It works well, although don't expect any surprises in terms of the material. Two things stand out - the subtle piano accompaniments Peterson turns in, showing his contentment to provide Armstrong with centre stage - and the cleverness of the lyrics in these songs. Cheeky, corny, witty, yes - but they don't write 'em like that any more. Music from a bygone age by 2 giants of jazz. Listen and enjoy.
