Another brilliant posthumous release from Sachmo. He recorded 'When You're Smiling' at least 3 times - in 1929, 1932 and 1956. This is from the 1956 date with Sly Oliver and his Orchestra and it captures the subtle arrangements and swinging style of their time together. The other two standards with the classic All Stars and Ella Fitzgerald are both great and round out the EP beautifully.
