Red Beans and Rice-ly Yours: Satchmo at the National Press Club
Long story short: It only took 41 years to finally release a recording of Louis Armstrong's January 1971 live performance at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
The artist died five months later.
Wrote Matt Schudel in yesterday's Washington Post, "The original album, 'Red Beans and Rice-ly Yours: Satchmo at the National Press Club,' had a limited pressing of 300 vinyl LPs. The new release [top], from the Smithsonian Institution's Folkways recording label, will be available as a compact disc, on iTunes , and from other digital sources. It marks one of Armstrong's final performances on trumpet."
The new release happens tomorrow (Friday, April 27).
