Absolutely Freakin' Stunning

(5 out of 5 stars)
"This is one of the greatest jazz album sets of all time. What you have here is some great standards sung wonderfully sung by Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald, many as duets, with Louis blasting out some great trumpet solos, and the peerless Oscar Peterson trio providing the backing.
Louis and Ella were recorded a lot together and clearly they enjoyed working together. This comes through in every song.
Louis Armstrong practically invented the jazz solo and jazz singing as well, after his lip split and put some limits on his trumpet playing. Here you have one of the greatest American figures of the twentieth century on absolute top form, as is Ella.
This is absolutely essential listening. It will probably make you cry, but afterward you will feel better.
My highest recommendation."
