There’s a difference between keeping time and doing time – but trumpeter, bandleader and all-round jazz superstar Louis Armstrong learned to play his first instrument, the cornet, while detained at a young offender’s institute in his native New Orleans. Instead of a life behind bars, he found himself counting them… and the world is still grateful. Louis Armstrong died in 1971 but his legacy will be listened to and appreciated for as long as music is played. The main airport in New Orleans now bears his name, a fitting tribute to a man who took his city’s music to an appreciative world.
