Description

1963's The Great Reunion was released as the second volume of recordings by Roulette Records from a 1961 summit that brought together the two jazz icons Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington. After hearing this collaboration you'll wish they had recorded ten volumes and with the musical talent and knowledge between them, they certainly could have. Using Armstrong's regulars plus Ellington at the piano (who performs exceptionally well, comping understatedly behind the vocals), the duo romps through seven of the Duke's most famous compositions. And when Satchmo decides to blow, he leaves the Dixie clichè at home and shapes his solos perfectly into the tasteful arrangements. With Trummy Young on trombone and Barney Bigard on clarinet plus a rhythm section of Mort Herbert on bass and Danny Barcelona on drums, these recordings are a once-in-a-lifetime dream that producer Bob Thiele was brilliantly astute enough to arrange and capture on tape for posterity.

Musicians:
Louis Armstrong, trumpet & vocals
Duke Ellington, piano
Trummy Young, trombone
Barney Bigard, clarinet
Mort Herbert, bass
Danny Barcelona, drums
