Louis Armstrong is learning “That’s My Desire" in French
This clip was filmed on June 17, 1969 at the home of Louis Armstrong in Corona, Queens. It is not only a nod to his tremendous career, but also shows his extraordinary natural ease, never before caught on film. In the first jazz festival in Nice, in 1948, Louis Armstrong asked critic Hugues Panassié to translate ‘That’s My Desire’ for his concert in Paris. He wanted to surprise (and unsettle) his singing partner Velma Middleton by inserting a few sentences in French.
