Notes

He taught the world how to swing, many critics have said. But before Louis Armstrong taught us that, he had to teach us how to listen. And from his earliest recordings in Chicago as a sideman in King Oliver’s band through his triumphs at the head of small groups and big bands of every description – first in Chicago, then in New York, and, from there, around the world, as America’s cultural ambassador – Armstrong’s irrepressible personality no less than his virtuosic trumpet playing and singing taught us something more fundamental. He really taught us how to smile.

There probably isn’t a corner of the world that hasn’t been reached by a Louis Armstrong performance – whether with one of his “good ol’ good ones,” with his Hot Five in Chicago of the 1920s, or with “Hello, Dolly!” from Broadway in the 1960s. Wherever, and so long as, there’s music, there will be Louis Armstrong. And there will be joy. Satchmo Forever!
