As part of Verve's Standards series, Louis Armstrong is spotlighted on eight tracks representing a more defined jazz-pop direction than his earlier legendary performances with his Hot Fives and Sevens. Among the eight tracks are "Dream a Little Dream of Me," "Georgia on My Mind," "I Get a Kick Out of You," and a 1957 duet with Ella Fitzgerald "Love Is Here to Stay," from Ella and Louis Again. Not a bad compilation for those seeking more than just another budget-line greatest-hits package.
