    Louis Armstrong- What an infectious smile.

  • Rene Cook

    “Louis Armstrong is jazz,” said Wynton Marsalis. “He represents what the music is all about.” Armstrong was an innovative jazz musician who not only propelled the growth of jazz as a genre, but also put the music into the pop culture limelight. He traveled throughout the United States and abroad, sharing his deft trumpet playing and distinctive voice with his many devoted fans. Louis Armstrong was born in New Orleans on August 4, 1901.
