Duke Ellington and Louie Armstrong

Here's another one of those "when two legends collaborate" type song for this week.

As you're already aware, Duke Ellington is my all time favorite jazz musician/composer. Louie Armstrong ranks right up there in the ranks as well. Most people know Louie for his singing voice (What a Wonderful World), but he's also an amazing trumpet player as well!

Needless to say, I about fell over when I stumbled across this album one day. I also discovered later on that in the deluxe edition, you get a second disc with all the "in studio" edits. It feels like stepping into a time machine. I would have loved to have been a fly on that wall.
