The Louis Armstrong Story

Music, Jazz
Louis Armstrong

One of the most distinctive voices ever to rattle its way through the jazz scene, Louis Armstrong remains an icon as both singer and trumpet player.

In a show that promises access to some of Satchmo’s original big-band compositions that haven’t been played since 1947, The Louis Armstrong Story features a 17-piece band made up of Bristol’s best musicians, joined by guest vocalists and soloists from New Orleans, along with actor Clarke Peters reading from Armstrong’s autobiography and personal letters.
