Jean-Pierre Derouard is drummin’, singin’ and he blows the horn, like his Master Louis Armstrong would said.

The trumpet is his main instrument when he leads his own group of well qualified musicians.

In this record, Jean-Pierre Derouard, self-taught trompetist, shares with us his love for Louis Armstrong .
