AllMusic Review by

This is the first domestic volume on CD of Armstrong's swing-era recordings for Decca in chronological order (1934-1936). Joined by the musical, but by then somewhat anonymous, Luis Russell Orchestra, Armstrong's melodic variations turn these pop tunes into fine jazz, even "La Cucaracha."
