Notes

CONTAINS NEW SPECIALLY PREPARED LINER NOTES BY PENGUIN GUIDE TO JAZZ’s WRITER BRIAN MORTON AND BY PARIS’ PRESTIGIOUS JAZZ MAGAZINE

“The mere fact of Louis and Duke being in the same room gave off an energy, warm, slightly combative, unrepeatable. In musical terms, this was like looking at Mt Rushmore, with just Washington and Jefferson on show.” – PENGUIN GUIDE TO JAZZ

“It is often said that only mountains can never meet. This saying was proved false the moment in which Louis Armstrong finally managed to record with Duke Ellington.” – JAZZ MAGAZINE
