Satchmo's Song

On Jan. 29, 1971, Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong played his trumpet at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. Fewer than six months later, he died. We listen to a song from the performance, recently released in the album "Red Beans and Rice-ly Yours: Satchmo at the National Press Club."
