Enrico Tomasso All-Stars, Salute to Satchmo
Enrico Tomasso was exposed to the best of jazz from when he was born, and started playing the trumpet at the age of five. His biggest inspiration was Louis Armstrong whom he played for as he walked off the plane in 1968 for a stint at Batley Variety Club. Louis took the seven year old Enrico under his wing for the two weeks, inviting him as his personal guest every night and giving him advice. This led to friendship and correspondence during the last years of Louis’ life.
Enthusiasts for traditional jazz will have a special evening on January 21st with the Enrico Tomasso All-Stars, as they present Salute to Satchmo. Louis Armstrong was a true legend, with music rooted in the New Orleans of his early years, further shaped by his time in Chicago and then in Harlem and New York. His six-piece All-Stars, created in 1947, featured some of the great names of traditional jazz. Tomasso brings a fine band to bring back great memories of this exceptional musician and his jazz.
