From the Vault: Just Getting Started…

Hello, thanks for stopping by.

There is no better place to start anything than with Louis Armstrong. Here he is supporting Dizzy Gillespie. Armstrong was the old guard and said some snide things about bebop, but the two ended up as great friends and lived close to each other in Queens. Jackie Gleason shows up at the end of this clip, so this must have been on his show.

As the headline and text suggest, this is the first post from The Daily Music Break. I am reposting the older material because it contains a tremendous amount of great music. Note the interplay when Gillespie accidentally sprays Armstrong at about the 2 minute mark. This initially was on the site on March 11, 2012.
