Louis Armstrong by Kenneth Partridge
  

Synopsis

Louis Armstrong by Kenneth Partridge

Born in a poor, dangerous section of New Orleans known as The Battlefield, Louis Armstrong overcame tremendous odds to become one of the most important musicians of the 20th century. From his 1920s-era Hot Five recordings, which forever changed the face of jazz, to such latter-day pop hits as Hello, Dolly! and the well-known What a Wonderful World, Armstrong enjoyed a remarkable career that spanned more than five decades. In addition to touring the world and recording countless singles and full-length albums, Satchmo, as the trumpeter and singer was known, starred in movies, hobnobbed with celebrities, hosted radio programs, wrote memoirs and magazine articles, and appeared on TV talk shows. Read about the wonderful life of one of America's most beloved musicians in Louis Armstrong.
