Dear Hans,

Louis Armstrong And The All Stars: 
Louis Armstrong (t/vcl) Trummy Young (tb) Peanuts Hucko (cl) Billy Kyle (p) Mort Herbert (sb) Danny Barcelona (d) 
Los Angeles, September 30/October 1-2, 1959.
It was recorded by Audio Fidelity.
I have had it on LP for many years.
A wonderful rendition.
There is an alternative version from this session on a Chiaroscuro CD.
That I do not have.
Very kind regards,
