|(16) Louis Armstrong and His Hot Five
Louis Armｓtrong and his Hot Fives
When Armstrong went back from New York at the end of 1925, he organized “Louis Armstrong and His Hot Fives” then “Hot Sevens.”
This was the Armstrong’s peak for his young age.
Later, Louis and Hardin divorced in 1938, but they kept good friendship for their life.
February 16, 1926, Armstrong recorded first Scat Vocal, and the title
was "Heebie Jeebies."
He dropped the score on purpose, but he pretended as if he kept
playing music against his will.
This was actually he had waited to do that.
In 1971, Harding passed away during the Armstrong’s memorial concert which was two month after his death. This is such a amazing story; don’t you think so? They may remarried in Heave.
