Notes

Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing of this collection featuring duets with Ella, Frank, Billie, Bing and more. The main ingredient to a good duet is that of mutual respect, professional admiration, even love, which often shines through a particular performance, and the pairings of Louis Armstrong with Bing Crosby on the relaxed “Gone Fishing”, or with Velma Middleton on “Honeysuckle Rose” or with “The Voice” Frank Sinatra on “Ad-Lib Blues”, or Ella Fitzgerald on “Summertime”, the great Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong significantly being the common denominator in each duo. Also included are two rare duets with Billie Holiday on “My Sweet Hunk O’ Trash” and “You Can’t Lose A Broken Heart,” while Armstrong and bandleader Louis Jordan perform an entertaining version of the classic “You Rascal You”.
