Louis Armstrong, nicknamed “Satchmo” came to prominence in the 1920s, influencing countless musicians with both his daring trumpet style and unique vocals. Armstrong’s charismatic stage presence impressed not only the jazz world but also popular music.

Armstrong made more than 60 records with the Hot Five and, later, the Hot Seven. Today, these are generally regarded as the most important and influential recordings in jazz history; on these records, Armstrong’s virtuoso brilliance, which he developed further with the All Stars 1946-1956, helped transform jazz from an ensemble music to a soloist’s art.

Simon Nelson and his DixieMix band, fresh from their UK tour as support band for Rod Stewart, make their debut at St.James playing the wonderful music of Louis Armstrong along with their own improvisations & creative sensitivities Simon Nelson – trumpet, Pete Oxborough – clarinet, Chris Wigley – trombone, Kevin West – banjo, John Benson – bass & Tony Wilkins – drums.
