‘Satchmo’ Trumpet Up For Auction

This photo provided by Neal Auction Company shows a specially-made brass trumpet to benefit Satchmo Summerfest, an annual music festival that commemorates the life and legacy of Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong, in New Orleans. The trumpet was made by Jason Harrelson, a trumpet-maker who has collectors all over the world. The trumpet is being auctioned Saturday. It has a fleur-de-lis mouthpiece and the transcription of Louis Armstrong’s trumpet solo for the song “A Kiss to Build a Dream On.” It also has a tuning slide mounted with a New Orleans Water Meter cover.
