Oakmont Sunday Symposium


Oakmont East Recreation Center

Sunday January 7th 2018 - 10:30am to 12:00pm

Peter Estabrook, Louis Armstrong: The Man and His Music

Louis Armstrong: the groundwork for artistry and innovation in the early years (1901-1930). Who influenced him? What happened to create the framework for his unique style? Whom did he influence? Why was he influential? Peter Estabrook will answer all these questions! Estabrook studied the trumpet and music arranging at Berklee College of Music and went on to graduate school at the California Institute of the Arts. James P. Newton, Jr., considered one of the leading authorities on Duke Ellington, mentored Estabrook’s transcription of the previously unperformed Ellington’s Queen’s Suite for a performance by the Danish National Radio Orchestra in 1990. His transcriptions of Miles Davis’s Jazz Trumpet Solos were included in the liner notes and bonus disk of the Concord Music Group’s re-release of the Classic Prestige Sessions. In addition to giving private lessons, Estabrook performs on cruise ships and all around the Bay Area. $3 donation, oakmontsundaysymposium.org.
