"If you have to ask what Jazz is, you'll never know."
"All music if folk music. I ain't never heard a horse sing a song."
Louis Armstrong - What A Wonderful World (Lyrics)
Louis Armstrong was a Jazz trumpeter, along with many other things. He was considered one of the most influential people through history. Everybody agrees that nobody can play like he can, and nobody ever will. He had his own swing to the jazz, and nobody can stand next to that. Louis Armstrong had many nicknames, like Satchmo and Pops. He was born on August 4th 1901, and passed July 6th, 1971.
He was put on the cover of Time Magazine for the week of February 21st, 1949.
