AYGO – Louis & the Good Book

“jazzaar concerts” 2009 gospel stage will be presenting a musical makeover of Louis Armstrong’s 1958 work produced by Milt Gabler and arranged by Sy Oliver for Decca Records. This re-harmonized version maintains the charms of the original work as the arrangements are carefully developed from transcriptions of the first recording – a combined effort by Fritz Renold, Bob Freedman, Dennis Montgomery III, Jetro Da Silva and Christian Jacob.

This will be performed live after a week’s process of learning on the bandstand by young Aargau musicians with world caliber professionals.
Featured as the voice of Louis Satchmo Armstrong is Bostonian flutist, Lance Martin, known for this talent. The ensemble will be directed by Fritz Renold with Dennis Montgomery III leading the choir.
