Check out the trailer for Sacha Jenkins' new documentary "Louis Armstrong's Black & Blues". The film offers an intimate and revealing look at the world-changing musician, Louis Armstrong, presented through a lens of archival footage and never-before-heard home recordings and personal conversations.

This definitive documentary, 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.

The documentary is directed and produced by Emmy-nominated Sacha Jenkins, and produced by Imagine Documentaries, Sara Bernstein, Justin Wilkes and Julie Anderson along with executive producers Brian Grazer and Ron Howard. The film is produced in association with Universal Music Group’s Polygram Entertainment with Michele Anthony and David Blackman serving as executive producers.
