"Louis Armstrong Meets Oscar Peterson" (Verve MGV-8322) presents Satchmo singing and playing standards that were not part of his usual repertoire. He was masterfully backed on the album by Peterson, Herb Ellis, Ray Brown and Louis Bellson. With the exception of the sessions the two musicians made with Ella Fitzgerald, Peterson and Armstrong would never record together again. This sort of accompaniment is unique in Armstrong’s discography, but it’s not the only thing that makes this album important. Of equal significance is the fact that Louis had never previously recorded the majority of the wonderful standard songs selected by Granz, andwould never record them again.
