Jazz icon Louis Armstrong, always the consummate entertainer, turned a 1971 award ceremony at the National Press Club into an impromptu performance that was one of his last concerts before passing away 5 months later. Joined by longtime band-mates Tyree Glenn and Tommy Gwaltney, Armstrong shows no signs of frailty on classics including “Mack the Knife.” The recording, originally a limited vinyl release by the National Press Club now available widely for the first time in both physical and digital formats, also includes highlights from Glenn's tribute concert to his late friend and teacher one year later. Armstrong often signed letters “Red Beans and Rice-ly Yours,” which makes for an apt title since his favorite recipes are included in the liner notes. 11 tracks, 58 minutes.

Subject: [ARSCLIST] Rare Louis Armstrong recording released

A rare recording of one of the last live performances by jazz trumpeter Louis Armstrong has been made public.

The move was prompted by the press club discovering a rare LP of the event.
