The Hot Five And Hot Seven on a Hot Fourth of July Open Thread

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Tonight’s open thread is a celebration of July 4th America and Louis Armstrong’s birthday.  thoroughly original and brilliant American artist who created and invented a completely new form of music, jazz.

Armstrong spent his entire life proudly celebrating his birthday on July 4. After his death it was said that his real birthday was August 4. But if Louis said that was his birthday, then that’s what we celebrate. It’s most fitting, a true American genius and a great patriot, Louis  Armstrong transformed American music forever.

The Best Of The Hot Five And Hot Seven Recordings – Louis Armstrong [Full Album HD]

The Louis Armstrong Hot Five and Hot Seven Sessions were recorded between 1925 and 1928 by Louis Armstrong with his Hot Five and Hot Seven groups.

Ron Wynn and Bruce Boyd Raeburn, writing for the All Music Guide to Jazz, note that “these recordings radically altered jazz’s focus; instead of collective playing, Armstrong’s spectacular instrumental (and vocal) improvisations redefined the music.” Armstrong introduced scat singing in “Heebie Jeebies,” and his solo on “Potato Head Blues” helped establish the stop-time technique in jazz.
