Overview

Continuing their excellent series of ballads and slower numbers paying tribute to a city, Verve has issued this 11-song set of songs as lovely as the city being serenaded: Paris. The collection starts and finishes with tracks featuring Louis Armstrong, a surprise choice considering that Armstrong is widely recognized for his uptempo catalog and gravelly voice, but it works very well, especially with Ella Fitzgerald in tow for the opening "April in Paris." Spanning over four decades, this soothing, enjoyable collection ranges from legends to contemporary favorites and is ideal as a soundtrack playing in the background or for a wide range of other relaxing environments.
