    Amazing

    He has made some beautiful music over the years. Jazz! He's made it with some truly gifted people. For me I'll always think of him when I hear 'What A Wonderful World'. First time I ever heard it he sang it. Amazing.

    I'm just kicking back listening to Louis blow

    with the Hot Fives and the Hot Seven. The CDs I have include some of his first masterpieces like Potato Head Blues, West End Blues, and Heebie Jeebies. It cannot be doubt that Mr. Armstrong was one of the men most responsible for the creation of modern jazz and was way ahead...

    Basin Street Blues

    Satchmo. Without doubt one of the best to walk the Earth.   I take refuge knowing there has been a man out there who seemed so perpetually happy. And could blow up a storm.   Louis has the secret of life, he has it all figured out - and he gives us sweet glimpses of...
