Just what Armstrong himself {the real substance in question} did with it Jay just like many other great jazz players did with popular tunes of the day before and after that makes it a legendary track. The jazz interpretation and the individual jazz "voice" of Armstrong brought the tune to real life.

Not my favorites for jazz tunes for sure but it sure beats the hell out of KG's by a mile take on it over top of the original that's a given for me for any real substance.
