CD Reviews

30 minutes of Armstrong's most commercial music
David Fieni | Los Angeles, CA United States | 09/06/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)

"While this record is indeed Louis Armstrong, and therefore better than 98% of the music available out there, it is only of marginal interest when considered within the specific context of Louis Armstrong's incredible and revoluitionary career. The disc is only 31 minutes long, which in the age of CDs is unforgivable. This is a great record for those with a superficial interest in Satchmo, especially those who want to have "It's a Wonderful World" in their collection, but not for anyone interested in exploring Armstrong's unmatched capabilities as a true jazz virtuoso. Most of the tunes here are overproduced and highly orchestrated. Still, it is Louis Armstrong..."
True musical genius

"What a wonderful album! All eleven tracks are strong, but of course his "What A Wonderful World" must rate as the most beautiful rendition thereof. "Dream A Little Dream Of Me" is my personal favourite of the album, but again, the entire selection is top class. This is/was one of his best releases, go and get it. I recommend this without reservation.If you are new to Louis Armstrong, then this is the best place to start. His voice is rich and deep, and the tempo ranging from slow Sunday afternoon, to an old-fashioned Saturday night dance."

""what a wonderful world" is the most beautiful song ever written and it is sung so beautifully too."
