Read in January, 2011

This biography tells of how the legendary trumpeter, Louis Armstrong got to that legendary status. The book tells of the story of Armstrong growing up quite poor in the city of New Orleans. The book details Armstrong getting his start by doing street concerts, and playing in a marching band when he was younger. A good biography.
