While many of Louis Armstrong’s recordings have become classics of the holiday season, he never actually released a Christmas album during his lifetime. Now, Verve Records is releasing the famed trumpeter’s holiday recordings as a cohesive body of work called Louis Wishes You a Cool Yule, marking his first-ever official Christmas album.

The 11-track album features nearly all of Armstrong’s holiday output, including Cool Yule, ‘Zat You Santa Claus? and Christmas Night in Harlem. It also features duets with two of Pops’ favourite vocal partners, Velma Middleton and Ella Fitzgerald. For an extra treat, it includes a previously unreleased reading of Samuel Clement Moore’s poem A Visit from St. Nicholas, popularly known as The Night Before Christmas.
