AllMusic Review by

Recorded at a variety of live dates in California throughout the 1960s, a period when Louis Armstrong's popularity was undergoing a wholesale revival, the legendary trumpeter and singer and his band are heard in moments of pure exuberance. They recall the musician's early years in tunes like "Stomping At the Savoy," St. Louis Blues," and the frenetic "Tiger Rag," and traverse the worlds of Dixieland ("When the Saints Go Marching In"), the pop charts (a performance of his hit "Hello Dolly"), and cabaret ("Mack the Knife"), with effortless grace.
