Louis Armstrong and his Orchestra was the first act to ever grace the stage of the Paradise Theatre on December 26, 1941. Bassist Rodney Whitaker, who performed on the inaugural Paradise Jazz Series concert in 1999, leads a top-notch ensemble to pay homage to Satchmo! Whitaker will be joined by trumpeter Marcus Printup, pianist Eric Reed, drummer Herlin Riley, saxophonist Victor Goines, trombonist Vincent Gardner, and vocalists Rockelle Fortin and Chris McDole.
Also on this double bill: Chilean-born singer, guitarist, and composer Camila Meza and her band join forces with a DSO string quartet to perform Meza’s original music.
