Example Jazz Memory
- I love Jazz I’m 77 years young and my era of music 50,60,70s was fantastic. My best memory ever was going to see Louis Armstrong in 1964 at Festival Hall. His presence on stage was unforgettable with a White Dinner Jacket and large hanky and always big grin. I loved all his tunes but Blueberry Hill was sensational, and to this day no one sings with such feeling “Its a Wonderful World”. Valerie Hood
