Petersonís fleet fingers dance through a short intro leading to Armstrongís usual laid-back vocal. The casualness of same should not distract the listener from the acute musicality of Popsís performance. This finesse follows through his solo turn as well. Composer Cole Porterís importance to the jazz repertoire is borne out again in this 4+ minutes of joy.
