Poll: A Look at Satchmo - Part I

Louis Armstrong is unquestionably the biggest icon of dixie jazz. He was the king on the trumpet and had a special distinctive voice that was unique. Duke Ellington said about him:

'He was born poor, died rich, and never hurt anyone along the way.'

Please remember Louis Armstrong lived from 1901 to 1971. That was a time when African Americans had even more significant struggles than today.
