"Satchmo at the Waldorf" was fantastic. The acting was top knotch - slipping in and out of disctinct characters. You'll learn a lot about Mr. Armstrong in a very short time. It is all so well done. There is a lot of strong language.

Acting was fantastic but the amount of foul language was over the top. Not necessary.
