AllMusic Review by

Louis Armstrong's concert at Symphony Hall with his All-Stars in 1947 was a major success, featuring the trumpeter with vocalist/trombonist Jack Teagarden, clarinetist Barney Bigard, pianist Dick Cary, bassist Arvell Shaw, and drummer Big Sid Catlett in particularly inspired form. There are 15 selections. Highlights include Satch's superb vocal on "Black and Blue," heated jams on "Royal Garden Blues," "Muskrat Ramble," and "High Society," and Teagarden's feature on "Lover Man." Joyous music.
