CELEBRATING SATCHMO, performed and taped at Old U.S. Mint in New Orleans, was produced for PBS. The DUKES OF DIXIELAND celebrate 40 years in 2014, and claim the spot as the oldest continuously operating jazz band in New Orleans.
Featuring Louis Armstrong favorites such as Mack the Knife, What a Wonderful World, Struttin’ With Some Barbecue and You Rascal You, Celebrating Satchmo is a tribute to the influence the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award winner trumpeter had on the music of New Orleans, where he was born in 1901. This CD/DVD set was released in 4 different formats: an EP cardboard sleeve for each, a full jewelcase for each, a deluxe double disc digipak, and a USB. www.dukesofdixieland.com
