Satchmo Swings
Tue, Jul 30, 8:00 - 10:00 pm
Jaqua Concert Hall, The Shedd Institute
Byron Stripling explores the classic recorded songs of Louis Armstrong as well as obscure, forgotten Armstrong gems. Look for favorites like "Potato Head Blues", "Rockin’ Chair", "Honeysuckle Rose", "Ain’t Misbehavin", "Flat Foot Floogie", "Dinah" and more! Peppered with historical commentary and bubbling with hot swinging jazz, this is the ultimate tribute to the man they called, Satchmo.
