Label: Pure Pleasure
Featured in Michael Fremer's Heavy Rotation in the April 2010 Issue of Stereophile! Pressed at Pallas in Germany!
In 1955, Louis Armstrong, along with vocalist Velma Middleton, got into the studio to pay tribute to the late Fats Waller. All the standards are here: "Honeysuckle Rose," "Squeeze Me," "Ain't Misbehavin," rendered in fine and mellow but gently, genially swinging fashion. Armstrong's trumpet is superb and his voice carries the good-time spirit of Waller's music.
