Satchmo by Louis Armstrong Pdf

"In all my whole career the Brick House was one of the toughest joints I ever played in. It was the honky-tonk where levee workers would congregate every Saturday night and trade with the gals who'd stroll up and down the floor and the bar. Those guys would drink and fight one another like circle saws. Bottles would come flying over the bandstand like crazy, and there was lots of just plain common shooting and cutting. But somehow all that jive didn't faze me at all, I was so happy to have some place to blow my horn." So says Louis Armstrong, a tough kid who just happened to be a musical genius, about one of the places where he performed and grew up. This raucous, rich tale of his early days in New Orleans concludes with his departure to Chicago at twenty-one to play with his boyhood idol King Oliver, and tells the story of a life that began, mythically, on July 4, 1900, in the city that sowed the seeds of jazz.

Satchmo by Steven Brower Pdf

Satchmo: The Wonderful World and Art of Louis Armstrong is a biography in the form of an art book. It tells the story of Armstrong's life through his writings, scrapbooks, and artworks, many of which have never been published before. Armstrong was the single greatest creative artist in the history of jazz and the American popular song. A true American original, he was prolific in coining colorful expressions that entered the lexicon; he wrote long, colorful prose pieces about his experiences; and he made hundreds of collages using marvelous photographs that capture archetypal scenes in the life of a jazz musician. Everything he did was an extension of his artistry. Satchmo is a vivid trip through American jazz at mid-century, to the beat of Armstrong's own jazzy words. The book also includes photographs of Armstrong and is framed by a text that describes his significance. It will be enjoyed not only by jazz fans but also by art lovers, who will welcome Armstrong into the pantheon of American visual artists. "The Revolution initiated by Gore Vidal with his Empire series is continued and modernized by Steven Brower in Satchmo: The Wonderful World and Art of Louis Armstrong. It is a Revolution that challenges the way in which history is told, read, and accepted...Most importantly, however, Satchmo reminds us that the book as an object is indispensable in a time when the fate of the printed book is very much debated."--Rami Shamir, Evergreen Review "Interspersed with vivid bursts of Armstrong's own writings, what emerges is a portrait of such intimacy, it comes closest in the vast Armstrong bibliography to capturing the humble humanity and generosity of spirit of one of the great figures of the 20th century."--Stuart Nicholson, The Guardian "Satchmo...had a way with yet another instrument: a pair of scissors. Between sets, he snipped words and images from ads and greeting cards, letters, telegraphs, and photos of friends and fans, then pasted them into jazzy, colorful collages. Satchmo: The Wonderful World and Art of Louis Armstrong collects these elegant riffs by the most artful of improvisers"--O, The Oprah magazine "A beautifully illustrated new book. It combines an eloquently-written narrative about the trumpeter's life and achievements with page after page of richly-detailed colour photographs depicting Armstrong's tape box collages." (4 Stars) --Charles Waring, The Record Collector "[Satchmo] perfectly complements and enhances the visual art of Louis Armstrong...a fascinating and handsome perspective on a particular aspect of the various talents with which Armstrong was blessed, one that had previously remained unexposed to the general public. ... a heartfelt tribute to the creative genius of Louis Armstrong."--Joe Lang, New Jersey Jazz Society "A beautiful book puts together hundreds of notebooks of collages never seen before by LA."--Paola Genone , L'Express

Satchmo Blows Up the World by Penny VON ESCHEN Pdf

At the height of the ideological antagonism of the Cold War, the U.S. State Department unleashed an unexpected tool in its battle against Communism: jazz. From 1956 through the late 1970s, America dispatched its finest jazz musicians to the far corners of the earth, from Iraq to India, from the Congo to the Soviet Union, in order to win the hearts and minds of the Third World and to counter perceptions of American racism. Penny Von Eschen escorts us across the globe, backstage and onstage, as Dizzy Gillespie, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, and other jazz luminaries spread their music and their ideas further than the State Department anticipated. Both in concert and after hours, through political statements and romantic liaisons, these musicians broke through the government's official narrative and gave their audiences an unprecedented vision of the black American experience. In the process, new collaborations developed between Americans and the formerly colonized peoples of Africa, Asia, and the Middle East--collaborations that fostered greater racial pride and solidarity. Though intended as a color-blind promotion of democracy, this unique Cold War strategy unintentionally demonstrated the essential role of African Americans in U.S. national culture. Through the tales of these tours, Von Eschen captures the fascinating interplay between the efforts of the State Department and the progressive agendas of the artists themselves, as all struggled to redefine a more inclusive and integrated American nation on the world stage.

And for more than half a century, she has lived her life hiding in the shadows of her father's fame.Until now.Now, Sharon shares her story—extraordinary because of who her father was, but universal in its reach toward generations who have grown up in fatherless households, searching for a keen understanding of their own blood, their own DNA, their own Legacy.

Satchmo by Michael Meckna Pdf

When pressed to name the most influential musician of the 20th century, many music historians will name Louis Satchmo Armstrong. Born in New Orleans in 1901 and recording into the 1970s, Armstrong is known as the father of jazz, the one figure most credited with moving the Western world from the age of classical music and Tin Pan Alley pop standards into an exciting new era of swing and hot jazz. Michael Meckna's book is the authoritative reference on Armstrong. Alphabetically arranged entries give detailed information on the many aspects of Armstrong's life and music. An appendix of CD releases includes entries that detail the record company, date of issue, song list, and performer list. Other appendices include a chronology, a list of movies, and a resource guide to Satchmo on the Web; a bibliography offers yet another useful tool for fans and students of Armstrong's life and music. A selection of historic black-and-white photos completes the volume.

Satchmo Meets Amadeus by Reinhold Wagnleitner Pdf

Satchmo Meets Amadeus examines the close encounters between classical music--the soundtrack of the Europeanized world--and jazz, the classical music of globalization. This is an eclectic collection of essays by renowned experts covering just about every aspect of the subject: the history of European and American music; African-American culture; international cultural encounters; the political, economic, and cultural histories of New Orleans and Salzburg; the political exploitation of music during the eras of National Socialism and the Cold War; the economic utilization of art by the music and tourism industries; and how classical music and jazz, the New World and the Old, have been blended. Satchmo Meets Amadeus analyzes the cultural, economic, social, and political structures shaping or hindering the creation of music, as well as the construction of popular images and myths about (and against) these seminal musical figures from the 18th to the beginning of the 21st century. The collection is enhanced by the insights of noted musicians Joe Muranyi (the last surviving member of the Louis Armstrong All Stars), Tom McDermott, Wolfgang Pillinger, Abi von Reininghaus, and S. Frederick Starr. Other contributors include Connie Atkinson, (University of New Orleans), John H. Baron (Tulane University, New Orleans); Erwin Giedenbacher (University of Salzburg), Hubert Giesinger (Salzburg) and Clemens Panagl (Salzburg), Christian Gruber (University of Salzburg), Rainer Gstrein (University of Innsbruck), Robert Hoffmann (University of Salzburg), Tad Jones (New Orleans), Kurt Luger (University of Salzburg), David Nelson (University of North Carolina at Greensboro's School of Music), Berndt Ostendorf (Ludwig Maximilians University, Munich), Gilda Pasetzky (Universit de Franche-Comt, Besanon), Lawrence N. Powell (Tulane University, New Orleans), Oliver Rathkolb (University of Vienna), Jack Stewart (New Orleans), Penny Von Eschen (University of Michigan, Ann Arbor), and Reinhold Wagnleitner (University of Salzburg).

Satchmo at the Waldorf by Terry Teachout Pdf

THE STORY: SATCHMO AT THE WALDORF is a one-man, three-character play in which the same actor portrays Louis Armstrong, the greatest of all jazz trumpeters; Joe Glaser, his white manager; and Miles Davis, who admired Armstrong's playing but disliked his onstage manner. It takes place in 1971 in a dressing room backstage at the Empire Room of New York's Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, where Armstrong performed in public for the last time four months before his death. Reminiscing into a tape recorder about his life and work, Armstrong seeks to come to terms with his longstanding relationship with Glaser, whom he once loved like a father but now believes to have betrayed him. In alternating scenes, Glaser defends his controversial decision to promote Armstrong's career (with the help of the Chicago mob) by encouraging him to simplify his musical style, while Davis attacks Armstrong for pandering to white audiences.
