Trumpeter and vocalist changed the language of jazz with his famous recordings by his Hot Five and Hot Seven. Solo improvisations and the concept of swing were never the same again. Enrico Tomasso, the trumpeter and vocalist who might be the closest thing you’ll hear live to Louis – he knew and played for the New Orleans star – fronts an all star group, featuring pianist Campbell Normand, to recreate the music.
