    Because of his relationship with his manager and the Karnovskys -- he borrowed money from the family to buy his first cornet -- he would identify with the Jews so closely that he became an ardent philo-Semite who wore a Star of David around his neck.

Louis Armstrong and wife, Lil Harden Armstrong. Lil, was herself, a gifted musician in her own rights and certainly a liberated, strong-willed woman in the male dominated world of Jazz.
