really liked it

A fresh, fascinating biography of Louis Armstrong, a true founder and innovator of American jazz. Unfortunately, Armstrong's reputation in later years as an Uncle Tommish entertainer has obscured his true importance to music. His unassuming, joyous, earthy view of life was conveyed well by Terry Teachout, a good writer on music and culture.
