Channeling Satchmo:Rochester jazzman Jon Seiger performs Sunday at McNamara's Pub

The All-Stars will present a well-rounded jazz show liberally sprinkled with material by Louis Armstrong, which is Seiger's specialty. In between songs the musicians relate anecdotes and recollections of Pops and other jazz greats so the concerts are educational as well as entertaining.

Jon Seiger is a unique performer in many ways.

He studied with trumpet great Roy Eldridge, graduated from the New England Conservatory of Music and is one of few performing deaf musicians. Jon has played with such notables as Ella Fitzgerald, Joe Williams, Jimmy McPartland and Ken Peplowski. In 1988 he performed at Carnegie Hall with the Hi-Tops, and for three years Jon was the house bandleader at The King Cole Room at The St. Regis Hotel in New York City.

"My band and I love what we do," Seiger said, "and we love preserving the legacy of Louis."
