Falling in Love With Louis Armstrong is part of RCA's mid-line Falling in Love With series, which focuses on romantic highlights from classic big-band, swing, and jazz artists. Armstrong's volume stretches the definition of romantic a little bit, at least if you go by the titles on the collection, but each of the 16 cuts -- including "Do You Know What It Means to Miss New Orleans," "The Blues Are Brewin'," "Pennies From Heaven," "Ain't Misbehavin'," and "Why Doubt My Love?" -- sustains a mellow, romantic mood. This record may not really be necessary, but for anyone looking for lovely, romantic music from Armstrong, it's not a bad choice at all.
