The Satchmo Award and Recipients

The Jazz Club of Sarasota created its most prestigious honor, The Satchmo Award, in 1987 to honor those who have made a “Unique and Enduring Contribution to the Living History of Jazz...Our Original Art Form.”  The Harold and Evelyn R. Davis memorial Foundation sponsors The Satchmo Award, which was created by Hal Davis, founder of The Jazz Club of Sarasota.

The Satchmo commemorates the contributions of the jazz great Louis Armstrong, nicknamed "Satchel Mouth" or "Satchmo." The award was designed by Frank Eliscu, a sculptor and art teacher, the designer of the  famous Heisman Memorial Trophy.
