Who Was Louis Armstrong?
Paperback - English

A product of the rough New Orleans neighborhood known as Storyville, young Louis Armstrong may never have become a musician had it not been for a stint in reform school. But it was his passion and genius that made Armstrong into a an American jazz legend. Illustrations. ...If not for a stint in reform school, young Louis Armstrong might never have become a musician. It was a teacher at the Colored Waifs Home who gave him a cornet, promoted him to band leader, and saw talent in the tough kid from the even tougher New Orleans neighborhood called Storyville. But it was Louis Armstrong's own passion and genius that pushed jazz into new and exciting realms with his amazing, improvisational trumpet playing. His seventy-year life spanned a critical time in American music as well as black history.
