It's hard to write a review for something like music because for the most part you tend to know what you're getting when buying something like this album.

The sound quality isn't bad, and you get a lot of tunes for your money, included a few of Louis Armstrong's better known songs.

It would also be a good album if you wanted to introduce somebody to his works.

Overall well worth the money.

By Thespionic TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 21 Jun. 2012
Format: Audio CD
I would recommend this album to anyone who feels like getting to know the great Louis Armstrong. This is a tale of a young lad from New Orleans who started life in correction institutions before learning his trade on the steam boats of the Mississippi. He went on to become one of the most prominent jazz musicians of all time. Born in 1901, he died in 1971.
He was already a star by the 1920's and I recall him fondly as a youngster in the 60's as one of the elder statesmen of jazz.
All of his hits are on here, plus many, many classics from the various eras that he played through.
He not only plays with his own various orchestras' (All Stars) but also with the likes of Oscar Peterson, Jimmy Dorsey & Russell Garcia to name a few ; Ella Fitzgerald duets with him on several tracks.
I personally prefer his style of jazz to that of Ella Fitzgerald and Billy Holliday, as for me it has more punch / clout and therefore sounds correspondingly more interesting on the ear, especially with that gravelly voice and shrieking trumpet!!
This is a top notch double album and a quality production. The backing is top musicianship which adds even more quality to Armstrong's distinctive voice.
The album, more than anything else, highlights what a great jazz icon this man was. It's 5 Stars all the way.

That record We Have All The Time In The World was a big favourite at the station I once worked at actively. I love the song. It's on here, plus many of the other records I played on various programmes. Louis Armstrong has one of those distinctive, gravelly voices much loved by those who are drawn to his music. If you love jazz, cop a load of this.
