What a Wonderful World. Produced by Bob Thiele. Album What a Wonderful World. What a Wonderful World Lyrics. I see trees of green, red roses too I see them bloom, for me and you And I think to myself What a wonderful world. I see skies of blue and clouds of white The bright blessed days, the dark sacred nights And I think to myself What a wonderful world

Recorded in New York and Las Vegas in 1968. Original released 1968 as ABC Records LP ABCS-650. Digitally transferred from original album master at MCA Studios, Glendale, CA. Mastered at Artisan, Los Angeles, CA. Special thanks: Chuck Cecil's Swingin' Years.

I see skies of blue and clouds of white The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night And I think to myself what a wonderful world. The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky Are also on the faces of people going by I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do They're really saying I love you. I hear babies crying, I watch them grow They'll learn much more than I'll never know And I think to myself what a wonderful world Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world.

Helmed by legendary producer Bob Thiele, this 1968 recording ushered Louis Armstrong into his later days as a pop vocalist. Here, the trumpet that drove Armstrong's early Hot Fives and Sevens is more subdued as his familiar gravelly voice takes center stage.

In 1970, Armstrong returned to What a Wonderful World for the album Louis Armstrong and His Friends, remaking the song with an updated, funkier arrangement by Oliver Nelson.
