    Background: Continuing his goodwill tour of Africa, American negro jazz trumpeter "Satchmo" Armstrong in Nairobi Nov 5, giving a series of concerts sponsored by the United States Information Service, did not receive the support from the Kenya Africans that had been expected, our cameraman reported.

    At the African Stadium under a hot tropical sun, Armstrong and his jazz group played before what was mainly a European audience although the price of admission for Africans was 50c (6d) and Europeans had to pay 10 shillings.
