Preston Jackson in Chicago - between 1915 and 1922
I'll never forget the day when he [Louis Armstrong] came into town [Chicago] (about 1920 or 1921). He wore a brown box-back coat, straw hat, and tan shoes. We called him Dippermouth. Satchmo was unheard of then. Well, Louis played a horn like nobody had ever heard. He and Joe were wonderful together. I had heard Louis play before in 1915 at a playground dedication when the Jones Waif Band featured Louis and Henry Rena. Louis was terrific even then. I was going to school where the playground was. That's how I happened to hear him.
