This budget sampler doesn't offer much in the way of packaging or song selection. The tracklist covers many of the tunes that became staples of Satchmo's late-career repertoire, including "My Old Kentucky Home," "Ain't Misbehavin'," and "Ole Miss," and contains little of the incendiary spark that ignites Armstrong's most important albums. But hey, it's still Pops. His high, bright horn and lovable gravelly vocals shine through on every track like an old friend, and that alone is reason enough to give this one a spin.
