Some of the most cherished Jazz classics that Razzmajazz Dixieland Band still reveres were composed, sung and enjoyed over the years. Time stops when some good music is ringing in the air and infuses it with an energy that gets everybody up on their feet.
Some big names in Jazz history that stay fresh as new every time Jazz is played include Louis Armstrong at the top of the list. Known for his influence on this music genre, Armstrong enjoyed burgeoning popularity as an American trumpeter and later, as an artist. He revolutionized the form of Jazz music and introduced the technique of scat singing.
There are many compositions that can be listed under his name that can jazz up your weekend any time. In fact, many of Louis Armstrong’s music still inspire us as we strive to keep the tunes of traditional Dixieland music alive.
