      "The Formula For Love" was recorded in Copenhagen on 26 January 1959 by the
      All Stars with the Van Pallandts. It's been reissued on several German CDs,
      which I assume are devoted to N&F, and also on Jazz & Jazz CDJJ626, which is
      from the Italian Green Line outfit and (was) widely distributed. Long ago it
      was Pye-International N25043.

      It actually was recorded in connection with a film called Kaerlighedens
      Melodi, which certainly has been available on video.

      The ultimate Armstrong curiosity is Onkel Satchmo's Lullaby (May 1959), on
      which he duets, and plays trumpet, with a poisonous moppet called Gabriele
      Clonisch, who was I think an Austrian kiddie-pop star. This also has a film
      connection (La Paloma), and is also on the Jazz & Jazz CD, and a lot of
      other CDs including Bear Family BCD16488 which I suspect is devoted to
      Gabriele (and the stuff of nightmares). No one but Louis could have carried
      this off and it sounds as though he's having a ball.
