Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington were and are two of the main stems of jazz. Any way you look at it, just about everything that's ever happened in this music leads directly -- or indirectly -- back to them. Both men were born on the cusp of the 19th and 20th centuries, and each became established as a leader during the middle '20s. Although their paths had crossed from time to time over the years, Ellington* - The Great Reunion in the entertainment industry had ever managed to get Armstrong and Ellington into a recording studio to make an album together.
A second session took place during the afternoon The Mooche - Armstrong* the following day. The music resulting from Thiele 's inspired experiment is outstanding and Aint That Terrible - Roy Redmond - Aint That Terrible essential. That means everybody ought to hear this album at least once, and many will want to hear it again and again all the way through, for this is one of the most intriguing confluences in all of recorded jazz.
Armstrong blew his horn with authority and sang beautifully and robustly. Other highlights include the bluesy "I'm Just a Lucky So and So," a smoking hot, scat-laden rendition of "Cotton Tail," and "The Beautiful American," a marvelously modern exercise composed on the spot by Ellington that leaves one with the curious impression that Armstrong has just finished sitting in with Charles Mingus.
