Ultra rare Louis Armstrong! This performance of 'Beautiful Dreamer' on the Ed Sullivan Show had all but disappeared from 1957 until 2015 when the Louis Armstrong House's Ricky Riccardi surprised jazz historian Dan Morgenstern with just the audio at Satchmo Summer Fest. Yesterday, the Ed Sullivan Show uploaded this to YouTube for the world to enjoy for the first time in 64 years. More details on this performance and its life since it first aired can be found via Ricky Riccardi.
