Blueberry Hill (Lewis-Stock-Rose) by Louis Armstrong and Gordon Jenkins & his Orchestra and Chorus

Jazz great Armstrong was dropped into the lush setting of a Gordon Jenkins arrangement for his revival of the 1940 Glenn Miller hit. This single would reach an even wider audience when reissued by Decca in late 1956 to compete with the Fats Domino “Blueberry Hill” smash.
