As Jazz Appreciation Month is observed in April, The Louis Armstrong House Museum has acquired recently discovered film footage of American music legend Louis Armstrong – the only known footage of him in a recording studio.
The 33-minute film was recently discovered through a buyer of abandoned storage facilities. The film was shot while Louis Armstrong recorded his 1959 album “Satchmo Plays King Oliver.” One of his daughters put the film in a storage facility with other belongings. Another daughter found out on a message board a storage facility buyer had the masters. She helped facilitate the sale. The museum will post one complete song on its website at LouisArmstrongHouse.org and show the full film at a later date. Louis Armstrong died in 1968.
Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder and his 7 year old daughter Harper are at it again…recording music together. This time: the classic theme-song from the old “Batman” TV show!
