I wanted to start with some clips that until now hasn't been put on YouTube.!
Next tune is 12th Street Rag. Awesome Solo from Trummy Young
I'm extremely happy! Today I've managed to get the first series of clips on YouTube. You know, I'm a YouTube watcher from the start (feb 2005), I discovered YouTube long before it was well known as nowadays. And certainly in my country the Netherlands, the hype started much later. From the beginning I wanted to share my DVD's on YouTube. Ever since I was looking for software to convert DVD into Mpeg-4 files. It was frustrated! I couldn't find anything right which was working well and simple to handle. My problem was also that I haven't had any help from anyone! But until last week, I discovered a fitting freeware program. And with much blood, sweat and tears I finally get this result!
Now my first series is about a concert from the Louis Armstrong All Stars.
It was located in: La Bussola-Focette in Italy. The concert was on thursday, may 7 th 1959.
It is featuring two of my biggest idols in Jazz.
Louis Armstrong and Trummy Young.
Of course Louis Armstrong! I'm afraid I can't tell you anymore news about him. And then Trummy Young whom I've seen just once in person. An experience I will never forget! I could write a lot more about Trummy. But not all at once!
