Title JALC Radio - Wynton Marsalis & Friends: Armstrong's Hot Fives
Season 14, Episode 22
Airdate 22/02/2007
Hosted by Wynton Marsalis


Select veterans from Jazz at Lincoln Center's Orchestra - Wycliffe Gordon, Victor Goines, Walter Blanding Jr. - recreate Louis Armstrong's revolutionary recordings from the 1920's. Marsalis' inspired soloing channels the greatness of his New Orlean's predecessor on "Cornet Chop Suey," "Fireworks," and "St. James Infirmary." 19-year-old pianist Jonathan Batiste astounds the audience with his traditional stride technique.
