Louis Armstrong

Louis Armstrong, one of the most important figures of Jazz music was photographed in the 60s playing his trumpet.

"Satchmo", as he was also known, is best remembered for songs such as: "What A Wonderful World", "Stardust", "We Have All The Time In The World", "Dream A Little Dream Of Me", "When The Saints Go Marching In", and "Hello Dolly". His trumpet and voice truly helped shape Jazz.

I'm glad to find your most recent must be my link to your blog is not working properly. I love Louis...especially his version of Stardust. I love it so much when Woody Allen used it as a theme for his film, "Stardust Memories"...I've got a lot catching up to do with your blog, haven't I?
