Program notes

Satchmo. There are very few people in this country - or the world - who would not recognize that name. Born at the turn of the century, Louis Armstrong was a living symbol of twentieth-century American Culture. He revolutionized the world of music and became one of the nation's most influential entertainers. In the nearly ten decades since he made his initial recordings, nothing has diminished the magnitude of his accomplishment.
