Happy Birthday, Louis Armstrong! L.A. was the first important soloist to emerge in jazz, and he became the most influential musician in the music's history. As a trumpet virtuoso, his playing, beginning with the 1920s studio recordings made with his Hot Five and Hot Seven ensembles, charted a future for jazz in highly imaginative, emotionally charged improvisation. Armstrong also became an enduring figure in popular music, due to his distinctively phrased bass singing and engaging personality.
