Louis Armstrong, Eccentric Dance, and the Evolution of Jazz on the Eve of Swing (Article)
Title: Louis Armstrong, Eccentric Dance, and the Evolution of Jazz on the Eve of Swing
Author: Brian Harker
Abstract: From the summer of 1926 to the summer of 1927 Louis Armstrong collaborated with a husband-and-wife dance team called Brown and McGraw. Closely matching the rhythms of their tap dancing steps, Armstrong seems to have been inspired to explore new rhythmic patterns in his solos from this period. Their collaboration reveals one of many intersections between jazz music and dance in the years leading up to the swing era.
