Byron Does Louis for COHJS!

ARMSTRONG TRIBUTE set for September 26 at Makoy Center

Once again your COHJS is pleased to present master trumpeter Byron Stripling, this time in a special tribute to Louis Armstrong, the legendary musician who transformed early American music and inspired the many other musicians of his time to participate in the formative beginnings and subsequent development of our country's original and unique musical artform, JAZZ.

Byron, an acknowledged authority on Louis, will give us one of his inimitable talks during intermission about the great influence Armstrong had on the music and musicians of his time, upon Byron himself in his formative years, and ultimately the future of jazz, based on his inpired presentation during Columbus Jazz Orchestra's Armstrong "Hot Five" and "Hot Seven" concerts last spring.  Some of our members and readers were present at the Lincoln THeatre, or have since seen it rebroadcast over WOSU-TV, but we thought it was so well done that we've asked Byron to elaborate on it in a reprise edition tailored especially for us in his own intimate, easy-going style.

This band of top-drawer musicians will join Byron in presenting the music typical of the New Orleans jazz scene:

Jim Masters- Trombone
Hal Melia - reeds
Sid Townsend - bass
Jon Eschelman - piano
Bob Breithaupt - drums

2:00PM - 5:00PM
Makoy Center, 5462 Center Street, Hilliard, Ohio
COHJS Members $15, Non-Members $20, Dance Club Members $10
