    Robert Palmer wrote in the New York Times (August 28, 1981): …with Earl Hines arriving on piano, Armstrong was already approaching the stature of a concerto soloist, a role he would play more or less throughout the next decade, which makes these final small-group sessions something like a reluctant farewell to jazz’s first golden age. Since Hines is also magnificent on these discs (and their insouciant exuberance is a marvel on the duet showstopper “Weather Bird”) the results seem like eavesdropping on great men speaking almost quietly among themselves. There is nothing in jazz finer or more moving than the playing on “West End Blues”, “Tight Like This”, “Beau Koo Jack” and “Muggles”. … “None of us knew we were making history”, said Hines, who was sitting at a corner table in Fat Tuesday’s with a substantial cigar clamped securely between his teeth. He was talking about West End Blues, Basin Street Blues and the other recordings he made with Louis Armstrong in the late 1920s, recordings that are now recognized as enduring jazz masterpieces. “To us, every one of those sessions was just one more recording and if people liked it, that was fortunate for us. I didn’t know those recordings were any good, to tell you the truth”
