Satchmo Lives! by Louis Armstrong ( 1901-1971 ) - Arranged for Brass Quintet and Banjo by Dwight Tibbetts.
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). Another great arrangement by Dwight Tibbetts - works great and plays pretty easily. It even start with the melody in the Tuba part!
