    For as long as I live, even in the after life he will remind me of my eldest child! As a baby my big boy LOVED LOVED and still does love Louis Armstrong. Part of his inspirational piano playing! People always say he is an old soul. I think he just has his mama's and families musical gifted ear!

Louis Armstrong. Armstrong's influence extends well beyond jazz music, and by the end of his career in the 1960s, he was widely regarded as a profound influence on popular music in general. Armstrong was one of the first truly popular African-American entertainers to "cross over," whose skin-color was secondary to his music in an America that was severely racially divided.
