Ricky Riccardi - What A Wonderful World

Tuesday, July 12, 2011 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm
Most studies of Louis Armstrong (1901-1971) focus on his rise to fame and his middle years; Riccardi, a musician and jazz scholar, tells the story of Armstrong’s later career. During the last twenty-five years of his life, the great jazz artist performed with Ellington, Fitzgerald, and Brubeck; he recorded with the All Stars; and produced a string of hits including “Mack the Knife” and “Hello, Dolly!”
