Sing Along Snacks: Louis Armstrong

It's never too early or too late for a snack, so crank up that volume on your computer.

Now that's a snack! A jazz and culinary treasure uncoverd at the National Press Club:

On Jan. 29, 1971, five months before his death, Louis Armstrong performed for the last time, at the National Press Club in Washington, to celebrate the inauguration of Vernon Louviere, a journalist from New Orleans, as the club’s president.

Served with the jazz were bayou dishes including shrimp mousse, jambalaya and a Jamaica rum pie prepared by Christopher Blake, a New Orleans writer and chef.

While not the music from that night, you can tap your foot along to Louis playing Strutting with Barbecue.
