Owning Institution: University of the Pacific
About this CollectionDave and Iola Brubeck created The Real Ambassadors in the late 1950s. The jazz musical pointed out the absurdity of segregation and makes the case that artists such as Louis Armstrong are the best and "real" ambassadors to demonstrate a nation's ideals. It was recorded in 1961 and performed live only once. Despite their efforts, the play never made it to stage. Here is a collection of interviews that document the creation of The Real Ambassadors.
