Hotter Than That: Louis Armstrong's Hot Fives
with the Bria Skonberg Band

Jazz Through the Looking Glass: The Hot Jazz Age
presented with Catskill Jazz Factory and the New York Hot Jazz Festival


"The shining hope of hot jazz" (New York Times), Bria Skonberg leads her band in homage to her idol, the great Louis Armstrong, with a night that calls on the seminal recording of the Hot Five, Armstrong's first recording band. The Wall Street Journal says “if Louis Armstrong and Doris Day could somehow be the same person, they'd be Bria Skonberg."
