Louis Armstrong: What a Wonderful World

Louis Armstrong was the most important jazz musician of all time.

From his early masterpieces (“Potato Head Blues,” “West End Blues”) to later hits like “What a Wonderful World,” he revolutionized American music. Catch three of today’s trumpet giants — Warren Vaché, Jon Faddis and Brian Lynch — as they pay sizzling tribute to the singular Satchmo, with a classic New Orleans rhythm section in full force behind them. The perfect coda to Jazz in July 2017.

Jon Faddis, trumpet
Warren Vaché, trumpet
Brian Lynch, trumpet
John Allred, trombone
Ken Peplowski, clarinet
Nick Russo, guitar & banjo
Bill Charlap, piano
Peter Washington, bass
Paul Wells, drums
