Tagline: Drawing on Louis Armstrong’s audio diaries, documentarian Sacha Jenkins (WU-TANG CLAN: OF MICS AND MEN) revisits the music and reappraises the politics of the legendary jazz trumpeter and singer. Executive produced by Ron Howard and Brian Grazer. 

Synopsis: “Louis Armstrong’s Black & Blues” offers an intimate and revealing look at the world-changing musician, presented through a lens of archival footage and never-before-heard home recordings and personal conversations. This definitive documentary, directed by Sacha Jenkins, honors Armstrong’s legacy as a founding father of jazz, one of the first internationally known and beloved stars, and a cultural ambassador of the United States. The film shows how Armstrong’s own life spans the shift from the Civil War to the Civil Rights movement, and how he became a lightning rod figure in that turbulent era.

Critic Quotes: 

“A doc that will make you appreciate Armstrong, the man. Someone far too complex to reduce to any one thing.” – IndieWire

“Jenkins is undaunted by the complexity of his subject, plunging ahead with swagger and not worrying if we have unanswered questions at the end.” – Hollywood Reporter
