This is one awesome duet. In 1957, Armstrong and Sinatra met up for a special episode of The Edsel Show. On the show, Armstrong and Sinatra teamed up for this immortal version of “Birth of the Blues”. Sinatra can’t hide his joy. Sinatra might have been one of the biggest names in music at the time, if not THE biggest, but on this performance, he looks like he’s honored to simply share the stage with Louis Armstrong, who influenced him and every other singer of his generation.
