Recent Tony Award Nominee Daniel J. Watts has teamed up with Louis Armstrong House Museum (LAHM) Program Director Jake Goldbas to create an unforgettable evening of music, spoken word, and tap dance. Louis Armstrong is as much a part of the future as his legacy defined the past. Daniel will lead the audience through poems, songs, and more that deconstruct the complexities of Armstrong’s life, with a stellar band featuring Alphonso Horne, Michael Stephenson, Mathis Picard, Zwelakhe-Duma Bell le Pere and Jake Goldbas.
