Louis Armstrong and Oscar Peterson - Let’s Do It (1957)
This is astounding. A nearly nine minute rendition of Cole Porter’s first ‘List Song’ (from the musical Paris), elegantly eased out by Armstrong, Peterson and their band members for the sessions. Recorded 31st July 1957 it was omitted from the 1981 Verve LP but made it onto the Verve CD reissue in 1997.
Today’s audiopost was going to be The Politburo - 20th Century Bum, but after this came on random play last night that went right out the window. Perhaps later. But really, this is immense.
