Satchmo in Stuttgart

You asked for it. Louis Armstrong LIVE.
"Basin Street Blues" recorded live
before an appreciative audience
in Stuttgart, Germany in 1959.
- Lester Perkins
Jazz on the Tube

or YOU can just...click HERE
And if you want to hear more from Louis with Trummy Young, Peanuts Hucko & Danny Barcelona...click THERE and do the scroll down boogie...but the text therein is SAVOYlicious!

You can't play anything on a horn that Louis hasn't played. - Miles Davis

Trummy Young was an original cast member of Johnny Carson's TONIGHT SHOW Orchestra and/or the first African-American TONIGHT SHOW musician.

As for the first African-American musician to play in a TV house band, that would be Buddy Collette.
Mr. Collette also had a featured role in this documentary
