The Satchmo SummerFest is this weekend in New Orleans and the Festival is honoring Basin Street Records with a “Spirit of Satch” award!
This is a great honor. There are few people that have graced our planet whose love has brought millions of people together. Louis Armstrong is one of them. We work each day to help our artists follow in his footsteps.
Catch Jeremy Davenport and Bill Summers at the festival this weekend.
Check out this interview with Grammy award winner Jon Cleary on CBC Ottawa ahead of his performance tonight at the Ottawa International Jazz Festival.
