Satchmo SummerFest includes a series of seminars on all things Armstrong held on the third floor of the Old US Mint.

Saturday's 4:30 session, "Cinematic Satch with Ricky Riccardi - The Satchmo Story (1962) is described as follows:

While touring Munich, Germany in May 1962, Louis Armstrong and His All Stars made time to film a television special hosted by Werner Gotze, The Satchmo Story. It was essentially a filmed version of the album, Satchmo: A Musical Autobiography, finding Armstrong performing many songs he hadn't played with any regularity in years, such as "Dippermouth Blues," "You Rascal You" and "I Can't Give You Anything But Love." Ricky Riccardi will be on hand to talk about the backstory of this true rarity, while screening some of its many highlights.

The clip below is from The Satchmo Story as it aired on German television; it includes two songs: "Muskrat Ramble" and "I Can't Give You Anything But Love". The band includes Trummy Young (Trombone), Joe Darensbourg (Clarinet), Billy Kyle (Piano), Bill Cronk (Bass), and Danny Barcelona (Drums).
