23457 Beiderbecke is the name of an actual asteroid. Named after legendary jazz player Bix Beiderbecke (1903-1931), the asteroid could possibly be the home of a jazz band, eternally playing in space as it swings through the magnificent concert hall that is our solar system.
Louis Armstrong é considerado “a personificação do jazz”. De voz inconfundível, o norte-americano não se limitava a uma atividade só: foi compositor, instrumentista, cornetista, trompetista, saxofonista, escritor, letrista, arranjador, produtor musical, dramaturgo, artista plástico, ator, tenor, maestro e ativista político e social. Ufa! Entender o jazz é mais fácil do que se pensa, e podemos começar ouvindo seu clássico “Hot Fives vol.1”: http://goo.gl/dSrkHb Boa pedida pro domingão! ———————————-
