#SatchmoFactoftheDay 5


#TrumpetTuesday #LouisArmstrong went on several Goodwill Tours during the #coldwar: Fresh off the wild success of his “Hello, Dolly!” cover, Armstrong made a trip to #communist East Berlin in 1965, where he gave a two-hour concert that earned a standing ovation. While not officially #government-sponsored, there are some who believe the concert was arranged by the CIA, which would make this just one of the many taxpayer-funded appearances he’d make #abroad during the Cold War in an effort to strengthen diplomatic relations overseas. Previously, Armstrong had performed throughout #Europe, #Asia, and #Africa—though he famously cancelled a planned 1957 Soviet Union tour, citing the recent Little Rock crisis.
