Louis Armstrong 101
Many people know Louis Armstrong from hit records like "Hello, Dolly!" and "What a Wonderful World" or from appearances in films such as "High Society” – but did you know he was arguably the most influential musician of the 20th century? In a dazzling multimedia presentation, Armstrong author and historian Ricky Riccardi will demonstrate just how "Satchmo" revolutionized the sounds of jazz and popular music with his innovations.
Ricky Riccardi, this event’s presenter, is the Director of Research Collections for the Louis Armstrong House Museum and has penned two books about Armstrong. He has given lectures on Armstrong at venues around the world, including the Institute of Jazz Studies and Satcho Summerfest. He is also a jazz pianist based out of Tom’s River, N.J. and received his Master’s in Jazz History and Research from Rutgers University.
