Jazz Music: “Struttin With Some Barbecue” By Louis Armstrong

Louis Armstrong Struttin with some barbecue is the example of the swing era jazz, which involves the use of several key instruments, including saxophone, trumpet, drums, piano and bass. The song sounds very joyfully. At the beginning of the song, there is an introduction, which involves the encounter of musicians, who start playing jazz. The opening part involves the use of solos, based on saxophone solo, which is later followed by the piano solo. At the same time, the main part of the song includes a sort of competition between the trumpet and the saxophone. Throughout the song they seem to compete with each other but it is not a mere competition, when one musical instrument attempts to suppress another one, but, instead, they are communicating with each other, as if the musicians are talking to each other with the help of their musical instruments. Drums are introduced loser to the end of the song as if to emphasize or complete the competition between the saxophone and trumpet and move the audience to the ending of the song. The song ends with musicians going away and with the saxophone playing the last part of the song. In such a way, solo plays the part of the communication and competition between the musicians.

The song feels the audience with joy. The musicians radiate joy themselves and so does their music. Instruments seem to sing in their hands. The music is fast and swinging from one solo to another from one musical instrument to another with the domination of the saxophone and trumpet. As a result, the musicians create the unique atmosphere and great joy, which they share with the audience.
