As much as Louis Armstrong is revered — and rightfully so — as the original jazz master, his stylized singing was never as strong a suit as his unique horn playing. Still, the general public knows and continues to adore his vocal works, especially if those folks were or are not particularly jazz fans. These 16 recordings spanning six decades hold some of his most memorable and beloved numbers, including "Rockin' Chair," "All of Me," "On the Sunny Side of the Street," his truly immortal version of "Mack the Knife," "Black & Blue," and "When It's Sleepy Time Down South." Thankfully, his popular and yet equally reviled "Hello, Dolly!" is not included, but the bulk of this package is legit Louis at his bubbly best. ~ Michael G. Nastos, Rovi
