A celebration of the bond of New Orleans & Chicago featuring the music of Louis Armstrong presented and arranged by the one and only Mario Abney.
Chicago born and raised Jazz Trumpeter Mario Abney is back home after spending 15 years in New Orleans. His sound fuses traditional and extended trumpet techniques in a most inventive way and his strikingly personal instrumental vision endows the music with an infinite array of tonal color. Recognized for his ability to create pure musical dialog, and hear music in a universally spiritual way, he is definitely one of Chicago's most pioneering young jazz musicians incorporating his NOLA experiences into every performance.
Join Andy's Jazz Club and Mario Abney & this special arrangement of The Abney Effect as they take us on a musical journey in celebration of the renowned music from the man many knew as "Satchmo" or "Pops",... Mr. Louis Armstrong .
