AllMusic Review by

Calling this Vanguard set the "best of" Louis Armstrong is a definite stretch as it was recorded in Paris in 1965. Though Armstrong maintained an entertaining show, his trumpet playing took a back seat as he became more of a mainstream entertainer with hits such as "Cabaret" and "Hello Dolly." This is a pleasant set, but nothing inspired.
