AllMusic Review by

This recent sampling of Louis Armstrong's vocal-oriented recordings features all but one from the 1949-56 period. Guests include Louis Jordan, the Mills Brothers and Bing Crosby ("Gone Fishin'"), but in general the music is somewhat commercial and of lesser interest than most of Satch's readily available CDs.
