Legendary trumpeter Louis Armstrong performs seven classic tunes in this release comprised of footage from television appearances, "Soundies," and early-sixties Goodyear Tyre Company jazz shorts. "Hello Dolly" and "Hello Dolly (Reprise)" are taken from a live television performance in Fort Hood, Texas in the midst of the 1967 Operation Entertainment Tour, "When It's Sleepy Time Down South" and "Just Because" were originally crafter as "Soundies" to showcase Armstrong to the uninitiated, and "Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen", When the Saints Go Marching In" and "&C'est Si Bon" are culled from a series of Goodyear Tyre Jazz shorts filmed in 1961.
