Louis Armstrong
Louis Armstrong Louis Armstrong - Born 8/4/01 in New Orleans, Louisiana, died 7/6/71 in New York City. Virtuoso trumpeter/vocalist and good-will ambassador was one of the most popular, and single most influential artist of the 20th century. Revolutionized both Jazz and popular music. Was Jazz’ first important soloist in the ‘20s with his Hot Fives and Sevens. His groundbreaking vocal techniques completely changed the face of popular singing, influencing everybody from Billie Holiday and Nat King Cole to Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby. Appeared frequently in films and on television. Had a huge hit with "Hello Dolly." Toured and performed around the world with both his big bands and smaller groups until his death from a heart attack. Very well recorded.
