AllMusic Review by

As part of Universal's Icon series, Louis Armstrong is spotlighted on 11 tracks focusing on the jazz-pop direction that Satchmo took in the later part of his career. Among the 11 tracks are "What a Wonderful World," "Hello Dolly," "Mame," and a 1957 duet with Ella Fitzgerald, "Our Love is Here to Stay." With so many quality compilations to choose from in Armstrong's massive catalog, this set can only be recommended to casual listeners.
