Description

Together For The First Time was released as the first volume of recordings by Roulette Records from a historic 1961 summit that saw the two jazz icons Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington joining musical forces. Companion album The Great Reunion would follow in 1963 and serve as the second volume from the sessions. After hearing these collaborations you'll wish they had recorded ten volumes and with the musical talent and knowledge between them, they certainly could have. Satchmo and Duke are in absolute top form on standouts like "I'm Just A Lucky So And So," "Cotton Tail," and "The Beautiful American," and are joined here admirably by Barney Bigard (clarinet), Trummy Young (trombone), Mort Herbert (bass) and Danny Barcelona (drums). These essential 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
