Louis Armstrong Hot Fives & Sevens image

The trumpeter and vocalist changed the language of jazz with his famous recordings by his Hot Five and Hot Seven. Solo improvisations and the concept of swing were never the same again. Enrico Tomasso, the trumpeter and vocalist who might be the closest thing to Louis you'll hear live - he knew and played for the New Orleans star - fronts an all star group, featuring pianist Campbell Normand, to recreate the music. LINEUP: Trumpet - Enrico Tomasso, Clarinet - John Burgess, Banjo - Ross Milligan, Trombone - Mike Owen, Bass - Roy Percy, Piano - Campbell, Drums - Tom Gordon. Plus special guests: John-Erik Kellso and Scott Robinson.
