Louis Armstrong in New Orleans - early 20th Century

from Hear Me Talkin' To Ya: The Classic Story of Jazz as Told by the Men Who Made It, page 14:

As many bands as you heard-- that's how many bands you heard playing right.

I thought I was in Heaven playing second trumpet in The Tuxedo Brass Band--and they had some funeral marches that would just touch your heart, they were so beautiful.
