Day: August 4, 2016

Happy birthday, Satchmo…

Today is the day that Louis Armstrong turns the ripe old age of 115 years young. One of the most influential jazz musicians of all time certainly doesn’t need any help from whatever poor excuses for writing I could send his way. So we’ll let him speak for himself.           And no celebration of the great Louis Armstrong would be complete without the following…     Of course, you could say that about any number of his recordings. When the Saints Go Marching In. Summertime. April in Paris. Pick one… Pick them all… Enjoy!   Happy birthday, Pops.       Image found here.     Advertisements
