Satchmo in the Studio
April 30, 2018 • 6:30PM to 8:30PM
On International Jazz Day 2018, The Louis Armstrong House Museum and the Museum of the City of New York are teaming up for the first public screening of the only known film of Louis Armstrong in the studio, recording his 1959 album, Satchmo Plays King Oliver. The acquisition of the film made headlines in 2015 but it has never been shown publicly until now. Armstrong scholar Ricky Riccardi will provide commentary on the film before a special live performance by David Ostwald’s Louis Armstrong Eternity Band.
Until January 29, this event is open to MCNY members only for early ticket sales. Please visit this link if you are a MCNY member. LAHM members will receive a discount code on the 29th.
