This release contains the complete master takes from the only full studio session ever made by Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington together. The date was originally divided onto two albums: Together For The First Time (Roulette SR52074) and The Great Reunion of Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington (Roulette SR 52103). As a bonus a true rarity that appears on CD here for the first time ever: Louis and Duke’s last preserved appearance together, promoting their album on the Ed Sullivan TV Show, as well as an additional song by Louis alone which completes all existing music from that program.
