One could nitpick about the fact that Satchmo doesn’t take more trumpet solos, but the artists have such a strong rapport as vocalists that the trumpet shortage is only a minor point. Seven selections find either Fitzgerald or Armstrong singing without the other, although they’re together more often than not on this fine set. […]

All About Jazz
The Oscar Peterson trio (joined by the fiery Louis Bellson) provides understated backing throughout, Peterson keeping his feistiness in check while Ellis delivers punchy chords, playing the best rhythm guitar of his career. […]

Overall, in choice of material and musiciansand in standards of performance it is very much Ella Fitzgerald‘s album, there being better places to hear Armstrong at his best. […]
