#SatchmoFactoftheDay 15

The #GreatDepression set in during the late 1920s, and Armstrong’s hitherto thriving career suffered a setback. The depression caused several of the prominent clubs where he played to shut down. Many of his fellow #musicians shifted to other professions to make a living.

He moved to Los Angeles in 1930 and played at the New Cotton Club. The club was often visited by the #Hollywood crowd, and #celebrities like Bing Crosby were regulars there. However, Armstrong did not stay there for long and returned to #Chicago in late 1931.
