In April of 1961, producer Bob Thiele had the brilliant idea of teaming up two of the greatest jazz stars of all time in the same studio: Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington. The sessions resulted in the amazing album "Together for the First Time" (Roulette SR52074).

As a bonus, the complete original soundtrack for the movie "Paris Blues", which featured Armstrong and the Ellington orchestra, as well as Armstrong’s original readings of two Ellington tunes, which he had recorded with a large orchestra in 1957.
