"Louis Armstrong Meets Oscar Peterson" presented Satchmo singing and playing standards that were not part of his usual repertoire, masterfully accompanied by Peterson, Herb Ellis, Ray Brown and Louis Bellson. With theexception of the sessions the two musicians made with Ella Fitzgerald, Peterson and Armstrong would never record together again. “Hearing Louis in the unfrilled, ungimmicked setting of the Oscar Peterson rhythm section”, wrote celebrated jazz critic Leonard Feather, “will be a treat for those who have often seen him in person and wished for fewer encumbrances. Basically Louis needs nobody but Louis –he could stand all alone in the middle of the Sahara, singing selected excerpts from the Tunis telephone directory, and we suspect he could make it for a week without food and water. But if there must be someone else, let it be the man whose team made this session such a happy occasion for all concerned.”
