“Armstrong Musical Nap, a portrait of a legend” (with the records from the P. and JM. Masse collection)

Saturday november 16 from 3:00 to 4:00 PM

Which other musician can boast about having schools, music academies, concert halls, and a 14,000 seats tennis stadium in his name … In 1995 at last, the American Administration dedicated to him a postage stamp and in 1998 his name was given to a square in the 13th Arrondissement of Paris ! These few examples reflect the huge popularity of a musician who has changed the face of music forever. He has simply invented the jazz we know today. In order to put together this musical nap, we have browsed through the gems of the Paulette and Jean-Marie Masse collection containing a large number of Eps and LPs recorded by Louis “Pops” Armstrong.

“Musical Nap : Black Voices Matter”

Saturday november 23 from 3:00 to 4:00 PM

The history of African American music is utterly related to the movements for emancipation and fight for the civil rights and against all forms of discrimination. Those fights “to make black lives matter” is the common thread that can be found under various forms in the roots of blues and gospel, of soul and hip-hop. Quietly installed in our deckchairs, we’ll listen to some of the voices that have marked more than a century of the history of music.
