Description: Born just two years apart, Louis Armstrong (New Orleans, 1901) and Leon Bismark "Bix" Beiderbecke (Davenport, Iowa) became two of the most influential musicians in the early history of Jazz. Armstrong/Beiderbecke scholar, trumpeter, composer Randy Sandke performs an homage to these greats who called Queens their home, and are listed on FTH's Queens Jazz Trail Map. Enjoy a post-show Q&A and Birthday Cake in honor of Bix, who was born March 10, 1903.
