« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Between 1946 and 1957, Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong teamed up to create some of the most timeless duets in the history of recorded sound. To celebrate Fitzgerald's upcoming centennial, Ricky Riccardi, Director of Research Collections for the Louis Armstrong House Museum, will take attendees on a guided tour of Armstrong and Fitzgerald's greatest moments, from their earliest Decca recordings for Milt Gabler to their Norman Granz-produced jam sessions backed by Oscar Peterson's quartet to their timeless take on the Gershwin's Porgy and Bess. Riccardi will provide context and background to these seminal recordings and will share rare audio of interviews with Armstrong and Fitzgerald discussing their work together. Any fan of jazz, of vocals, of swinging, of scatting and of just plain good music should not miss this event!?
