After moving to New York from Chicago he became a very famous trumpet soloist, touring America and Europe. He not only played the trumpet but wrote songs and sang.also helped to invent scat singing. These would all lead to him becoming one of the most famous musicians in the 1920s
I moved here from Chicago for a new start and to perform at that fabulous theatre, Hot Chocolates.
What brought you to New York?
Would you like to come see my game tomorrow.
It would be a pleasure.
