Yes, ironic that this was not released on vinyl, I too would have loved to buy a reissue of the original pressing

>  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.
