The CRJO feat. James Williams: Louis Armstrong Birthday Pt II!

($25-$35 tickets | 7pm & 8:30pm sets) Join the 17 piece Century Room Jazz Orchestra with speical guest James Williams as they perform tunes from the Louis Armstrong big band book! Arthur got hold of the original 1947 Louis Armstrong Big Band band arrangements courtesy of the Louis Armstrong House & Museum in Corona, Queens so this will be an Arizona premiere of this great music!

For the majority of Louis Armstrong’s life, the legendary trumpeter claimed to have been born on July 4, 1900. However, after he passed away his original birth records were discovered showing that he was in fact born on August 4, 1901. We celebrate both because Louis was larger than life!

**James Williams**

Tucson native James Williams brings his authentic jazz trumpet and confident vocal stylings to any stage he graces, whether it be with his own contemporary-sounding James Williams Band or with the traditional jazz combo, the New Orleans Swamp Donkeys. Williams has been based in New Orleans for over a decade and toured the world and performed with many jazz greats. He is particually known for channeling the spirit of Satchmo in his fantastic Louis Armstrong tributes!
