In 1955, Louis Armstrong, along with vocalist Velma Middleton, got into the studio to pay tribute to the late Fats Waller. All the standards are here: "Honeysuckle Rose," "Squeeze Me," "Ain't Misbehavin," rendered in fine and mellow but gently, genially swinging fashion. Armstrong's trumpet is superb and his voice carries the good-time spirit of Waller's music.

A1 - Honeysuckle Rose
A2 - Blue Turning Grey Over You
A3 - 'm Crazy 'Bout My Baby

A5 - Keepin' Out of Mischief Now
