Rate this:
Louis Armstrong's Life and the history of jazz are inextricably linked. Born in New Orleans, the crucible of jazz, in 1901, Armstrong played cornet on Mississippi riverboats and in traditional funeral processions. By 1928, when he began playing "West End Blues" to Chicago audiences, this peerless entertainer who became the embodiment of jazz was defining a new musical tradition with each performance. In a career that spanned a half-century, Armstrong remained an innovator.
