AllMusic Review by

Other than the soundtrack version of "Jeepers Creepers" and two other items, all of this CD is taken from broadcasts of Armstrong's little-known and unrecorded orchestra of 1943. Much of the music is fairly routine swing, but the Armstrong trumpet (which always sounds so enthusiastic) and features for The Mills brothers ("Paper Doll") and clarinetist Barney Bigard make this rarity of some interest.
