“Some critics have portrayed the Armstrong-Peterson encounter as if it were a heavyweight fight won on points by the younger, faster man. They can’t have been listening. Armstrong is by no means bested. It’s good to hear him on more obviously ‘modern’ material and while the accompaniments are certainly faster and busier than he would normally expect or like, he isn’t one bit discouraged. In fact one gets the feeling that while the group is working hard, Pops is merely having a fun day in the studio, doing what he had done, serenely and with grace, for years.” - PENGUIN GUIDE TO JAZZ

“Armstrong had lost none of his magic, which is apparent in his vibrant and facetious voice, imbued with striking emotion, and also in the sound of his jubilant and luminous trumpet. The two sides of Louis’ genius find a perfect balance with Oscar Peterson’s delicate playing. Jewelry of simplicity and sophistication, of joys and sorrows, of wisdom and insanity, this is an indispensable album for your collection”. - JAZZ MAGAZINE
