Louis Armstrong in New Orleans - 1911
Now Bunk [Johnson], he's another man they ought to talk about. What a man! Just to hear him talk sends me. I used to hear him in Frankie Duson's Eagle Band in 1911. Did that band swing! How I used to follow him around. He could play funeral marches that made me cry.
