Who saw Pops live?

I did. Adelaide, Australia, 1955, with (for me) his best lineup, with Trummy, Ed Hall, Billy Kyle, Arvell Shaw and Barrett Deems. I don't remember whether Velma was present.

I saw Armstrong, with Trummy Young, Peanuts Hucko, Billy Kyle, Danny Barcelona and I think Mort Herbert, at the Arena in Hamilton Ontario, in the autumn of 1959.  I remember the event, if not the exact date.  Most of my college classmates were already deep into rock, and me liking jazz was considered odd.

I imagine that would hold for most of us here!

Satchmo, Take Two: Louis Armstrong At The Movies

The world may not seem that wonderful, especially right now, but it's always at least a little bit that way if you're listening to Louis Armstrong.
