JAZZ-O-RAMA: Satchmo Meets Pops




Satchmo Meets Pops

For Father's Day, host Joe Bev presents an hour of early and late recordings of one of the Fathers of Jazz: Louis Armstrong, including:

Willie The Weeper; 

Mack The Knife;
Down In Honky Tonk Town;
Cornet Chop Suey;
Kiss Of Fire;
Satchelmouth Swing;
Gut Bucket Blues;
C'est Si Bon;
 Laughin' Louie;
High Society;
A Kiss To Build A Dream;
and On Mahogany Hall Stomp (four versions)


Nicknamed Satchmo or Pops, Armstrong had a long and successful career as a American jazz trumpeter and singer from New Orleans, Louisiana. Coming to prominence in the 1920s as an "inventive" trumpet and cornet player, Armstrong was a foundational influence in jazz, shifting the focus of the music from collective improvisation to solo performance. With his instantly-recognizable gravelly voice, Armstrong was also an influential singer, demonstrating great dexterity as an improviser, bending the lyrics and melody of a song for expressive purposes. He was also skilled at scat singing (vocalizing using sounds and syllables instead of actual lyrics).

Joe Bevilacqua, also known as Joe Bev, is primarily known as a radio theater dramatist, but his career has taken him into every aspect of show business, including stage, film, and television, as a producer, director, writer, actor, and even cartoonist. In 1971 his father bought him a cassette recorder, on which he created his first audio story, Willoughby and the Professor, acting all the voices himself at the age of twelve. In 1975 Daws Butler, the voice of Yogi Bear and many other Hanna-Barbera and Jay Ward cartoon characters, dubbed himself Bevilacqua’s personal mentor after hearing a 120-minute cassette of Willoughby improvisations. Since 1980 Bevilacqua has produced many award-winning radio programs for National Public Radio, Sirius-XM Satellite Radio, and others.
