Louis Armstrong

Louis Armstrong is a jazz and blues legend. Born in 1901 in New Orleans and died in 1971 in New York, this trumpeter, singer and composer is also known as Satchmo, Satch and Pops. From his earliest childhood he sang in the streets of New Orleans and played the cornet in the cabarets in Storyville before moving to Chicago. He played the trumpet with Joe "King" Oliver, whose work he admired. It was in this city that he recorded his first records. He played in various jazz orchestras before touring Europe in the 1930s. For 30 years, Louis Armstrong played no less than 300 concerts a year. He recorded many albums, including three with Ella Fitzgerald, another American musical legend. In 1964, with Hello Dolly, he succeeded in dethroning the Beatles from the Billboard Hot 100 and thus became the oldest artist to be at the top of this ranking. Four years later, he seduced the United Kingdom with What a Wonderful World, a title that did not enjoy the same success in the United States. However, it featured on the soundtrack of the 1987 film Good Morning, Vietnam 20 years later. During his long career, Louis Armstrong was responsible for major titles such as C'est si bon, Dream a Little Dream of Me and Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen.
