Helmed by legendary producer Bob Thiele, this 1968 recording ushered Louis Armstrong into his later days as a pop vocalist. Here, the trumpet that drove Armstrong’s early Hot Fives and Sevens is more subdued as his familiar gravelly voice takes center stage. Showcasing the powerful title track as well as several cheery pop favorites, Armstrong’s prowess as an interpreter of song is unmistakable during these recordings, despite his rapidly failing health. Satchmo’s amiable presence carries this recording through a few slow moments and has endeared the album as a pop vocal classic.
