This is a biography of Louis Armstrong, the world's greatest trumpet player whose electrifying solos and one-of-a-kind raspy singing voice revolutionized American music. Armstrong is one of jazz music's greatest performers and is beloved around the world. This book follows his childhood of abject poverty in New Orleans through his rise to stardom in Chicago and New York. At the same time, the reader learns about the rise of jazz as a uniquely American art form as well as the racial prejudices that Louis was subject to at the time.
