Recording October 1957 in Chicago Illinois
Production Norman Granz

Just a glance at the original cover is enough &nbsp the&nbsp King of the Trumpet&nbsp and the King of the Keyboard&nbsp must have thoroughly enjoyed making this album back in 1957 Musical sparks obviously flashed right from the very first title
Well that s not really surprising since the two musicians were the&nbsp dream team&nbsp of the Fifties and only the producer Norman Granz who had both artists under contract could make that dream come true Louis Armstrong is at the centre of most titles as singer but his crystalclear brilliant trumpet sound had lost nothing of its fascination in the Fifties
Naturally Oscar Peterson does not let himself be restricted to the mere role of accompanist&nbsp he s far too genial too full of imagination and technically accomplished for that&nbsp You Go To My Head in the version as sung by Billie Holiday can match hers any day filled as it is with unspent freshness and clarity This title provides a good example of how Armstrong and the Peterson Quartet breathed new life into the old war horses of the American Songbook&nbsp and set new standards for the art of improvisation&nbsp There s No You in which Louis is joined by Herb Ellis is a jewel of a performance and deserves special mention
The old MGM/Verve pressings often had the drawback that the high notes tended to hiss which of course spoiled listening to Armstrong s voice Luckily this defect has been ironed out in this new pressing
