The biggest names in 20th Century music perform with one of the greatest improvisational players in jazz history as film star Paula Kelly hosts a collection of memorable clips compiled to celebrate the 100th birthday of trumpet virtuoso Louis Armstrong. From the streets of New Orleans to the hallowed concert halls of Europe, Armstrong's music was universal in its ability to entertain and amaze. As a performer Armstrong performed with some of the music industry's biggest talents, and in this compilation drawn from vintage performances and movie appearances, the man called "Satchmo" performs with Gene Krupa, Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, and Billie Holiday among many others.
