Read from September 14 to 19, 2012

Excellent overview of the life of Louis Armstrong with the emphasis on his music & his importance in the history of American pop culture. Teachout skewers those jazz fans who lost interest in Armstrong after he was embraced by the much larger audience for pop music. A wonderful book.
