Two Original Albums Plus Bonus Tracks!

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, collected together with bonus tracks in the 2LP-set The Great Summit Recordings, you'll wish they had recorded ten volumes and with the musical talent and knowledge between them, they certainly could have. 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. Satchmo and Duke are in absolute top form throughout both dates!
