Louis Armstrong's Black & Blues Trailer

“All over the world he had the respect and love of millions, what more could anyone ask for?” Apple TV has revealed an official trailer for a musical documentary film with the title Louis Armstrong’s Black & Blues – that title is pretty clever. The film just premiered at the 2022 Toronto Film Festival and will be available to stream later this fall via Apple TV+. TIFF introduces it, saying: “Louis Armstrong meticulously recorded audio diaries of himself that reveal a different side of his personality than the on-camera showman. These tapes play a key role in this deeply enriching documentary portrait of the virtuoso jazz musician—one that also draws on an astonishing array of additional archival footage.” Sounds good, I’m intrigued. They add this tidbit: “Visually, the film remains anchored in Armstrong’s era and draws on eclectic footage of him in performance, on the road and at home.” Reviews from TIFF are all positive, praising the intelligent film, saying the director “Undaunted by the complexity of his subject, Jenkins throws himself forward with swagger and don’t care if we have unanswered questions at the end.” Bring it on! Looks like a must-watch for music lovers.
