The Life of Louis Armstrong

King of Jazz

Series: Legendary African Americans

By Wendie C. Old

"Music has been in my blood from the day I was born," said Louis Armstrong. Author Wendie C. Old weaves a rich, colorful tapestry of the life of this beloved and brilliant musician known to his fans as Satchmo. Louis Armstrong rose from poverty and a troubled childhood to set the music world on fire with his lively trumpet playing and trademark raspy singing voice. With a natural talent for showmanship, Armstrong won fame while touring around the world, and proved to be one of the most extraordinary performers of the Jazz Age and beyond. This book is developed from LOUIS ARMSTRONG: KING OF JAZZ to allow republication of the original text into ebook, paperback, and trade editions.
