WAX ON #3 Louis Armstrong

The revolutionary records and iconic artists that shaped Jazz

WAX ON #3 Louis Armstrong

Presented in association with The Record Spot, Dublin, WAX ON is both a listening party, placing the needle in the groove of a collection of favourite jazz albums, as well as an intimate space for story-telling and reflections.

For the third installment of our WAX ON series, we will be delving into the music and life of the great LOUIS ARMSTRONG!

Affectionately nicknamed 'Satchmo', Armstrong was an American trumpeter, composer, singer and occasional actor who was one of the most influential figures in jazz. His career spanned five decades, from the 1920s to the 1960s, and different eras in the history of jazz.

An all-star virtuoso, he came to prominence in the 1920s, influencing countless musicians with both his daring trumpet style and unique vocals. Armstrong's charismatic stage presence impressed not only the jazz world but all of popular music.

Join IMC and a curated panel of passionate music lovers at the second event of our new series WAX ON to enjoy some of Louis' most influential recordings, as well as stories from his life.

Moderated by Irish Times music critic Cormac Larkin with a panel of jazz aficionados, WAX ON brings you on a journey through the life and recordings of some of the most influential and important artists of the jazz genre.
