LOUIS ARMSTRONG & HIS ALL STARS & BIG BAND - LOUIS ARMSTRONG


Louis Armstrong is one of the most influential figures in jazz with a career spanning five decades (1920s to the 1960s). The career starts with playing in brass bands and on riverboats in New Orleans, learning to read music and being one of the first musicician performing extended trumpet solos, moving to Chicago to play in King Oliver's Creole Jazz Band, went to New York City to play with the Fletcher Henderson Orchestra, returning to Chicago to form his own group as Louis Armstrong and his Hot Five. Back in N.Y. he emerged as a vocalist with his scat singing style, enriched by matchless experience as a trumpet soloist. He kept touring well into his 60s, played as well Africa, Europe and Asia, got the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!
