Personnel includes: Louis Armstrong (vocals, trumpet).
Recorded at Sunset Sound Recorders, Hollywood, California in 1966. Includes liner notes by Andre Mika, Terence Blanchard, Leroy Jones.
The first words Louis Armstrong sings in this set are not words at all, they're the nonsense syllables of "Zip A Dee Doo Dah" (from Cinderella). If you're thinking there's a relationship with the fractured verbiage of scat singing, that's probably what also went through the minds of everyone at the meeting when the idea for this album was broached in some Disney board room in the mid-'60s.
It says much about both Armstrong and these ten songs that they fit each other so well. Both the compositions and the singing are regularly thought of in other contexts, but both are resilient and flexible enough to allow this delightful mutual embrace. Armstrong, singing songs associated with animated dwarfs, wooden puppets, chimney sweeps, and tigers, is never short of completely believable, as he finds the heart of each character.
