WAX ON is both a listening party, placing the needle in the groove of a collection of favourite jazz albums, as well as an intimate space for story-telling and reflections.
Affectionately nicknamed 'Satchmo', Armstrong was an American trumpeter, composer, singer and occasional actor who was one of the most influential figures in jazz. His career spanned five decades, from the 1920s to the 1960s, and different eras in the history of jazz.
Moderated by Irish Times music critic Cormac Larkin with a panel of jazz aficionados, WAX ON brings you on a journey through the life and recordings of some of the most influential and important artists of the jazz genre.
