“YOUNG JAZZ ENTERTAINERS”

From a news story in the Westerly Sun (author unknown) on photographer Carmel Vitullo, born in 1925, whose works are being exhibited in the Bert Gallery in Provincetown, Rhode Island:

Curious to develop new subject matter, Vitullo attended the First Newport Jazz Festival and photographed young jazz entertainers such as Louis Armstrong on the trumpet, Jo Jones on the drums and others. Today these works are important historical documentation of people and events in Rhode Island.

I agree with this anonymous journalist: Louis and Jo are “young” forever.
