Musician performing tribute to Louis Armstrong

Bob Masteller Bob Masteller

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Bob Masteller, a well-known muscisian in the Lowcountry and Coastal Empire, will be performing "A Tribute to Louis Armstrong" at the Westin Savannah Harbor and Resort on Sunday, November 21 at 5 p.m. The event is free for Coastal Jazz Association members and $10 for non-members.

Mastellar has played with a number of well known musicians throughout his career. From 1973 until 1980, while senior vice president of The Sea Pines Company, he played in a group called Jazz Reborn, which included Mark Stuppy and legendary entertainer Garry Moore. He was also known in Savannah as the trombonist with The River Street Ramblers, which also included Savannah music legends Sam Gill and Ken Palmer.

Masteller has performed for three former presidents, Ford, Clinton and Bush, as well as Senator Bobby Kennedy. Another highlight was his performance during the filming of "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil".

Mastellar has spent the last ten years on his lifelong dream, the Jazz Corner. The club opened in 1999 with the legendary georgia Shearing Quintet.

 "The Jazz Corner has allowed me to pursue, with equal intensity, business and artistic goals at the same time, and I feel good about both pursuits", said Masteller in a news release.

He has overseen the production of a live television series at the Jazz Corner called "The Man Who Lived Jazz", which aired on the senior channel.

Masteller conducts seminars across the country on the history of Jazz and various venues throughout the country.
