The two greatest figures in jazz meet for a studio get-together -- what could be bad? The genuine feeling between these two giants is almost palpable as they jam their way through some Ellington favorites ("I'm Just a Lucky So and So," "Cottontail," "Mood Indigo," "Do Nothin' Till You Hear from Me," "Solitude") that accommodate "Pops" perfectly. With Ellington at the piano and Armstrong's working band in tow -- including trombonist Trummy Young and clarinetist Barney Bigard, a former Ellington band member -- the grand trumpeter and premier jazz vocalist is able to relax and turn in some magisterial interpretations of first-rate material. Ellington sounds like he's having a ball, his piano work pitched perfectly for Armstrong and the small group.
