David Ostwald’s Louis Armstrong Eternity Band: “Remembering The Past and Celebrating The Future”
In celebration of International Jazz Day, Flushing Town Hall presents a live stream from our stage featuring David Ostwald’s Louis Armstrong Eternity Band.
Since 1980, this acoustically electrifying group has appeared nationally and internationally in varied settings—currently in the twentieth year of its open-ended weekly Wednesday evening engagement at New York City’s Birdland, at Lincoln Center’s Midsummer’s Night Swing, at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, at Jazz in July at the 92nd Street Y, at Lionel Hampton’s New Orleans-style funeral procession, and at four appearances at Scotland’s Nairn International Jazz Festival. The band’s guest musicians have included Wynton Marsalis, Dick Hyman, Jon Hendricks, Clark Terry, Jon Faddis, and blues great Big Joe Turner, whose recording with the band was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1986.
A live Q&A moderated by FTH’s Jazz Producer Clyde Bullard will follow the performance, with David Ostwald answering questions from virtual audience.
