Memorabilia of the man who is largely credited as the “Father of Jazz and Popular Music” will be on display at the Norman P. Murray Community and Senior Center throughout February, as a part of a tribute to Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong that also includes a screening of the musician’s life on Feb. 27.
Armstrong is credited with having established many of the guidelines for music of the 20th century and beyond. He is known for setting an un-beaten standard through his remarkable trumpet playing and singing.
Local jazz trumpeter, Tony Guerrero, whose dynamic CDs have gained critical acclaim and a worldwide fan base, will share his impressive collection of Armstrong memorabilia with the public in celebration of Black History Month.
Guerrero will also host a special screening at 7 p.m. Feb. 27 of the documentary “Satchmo”, which chronicles the life of the legendary musician.
The Norman P. Murray Community and Senior Center is at 24932 Veteran’s Way. For more information, call 949-470-8452.
