Louis Armstrong Show DVD
Louis Armstrong ShowDVD
Louis Armstrong was the first important soloist to emerge in jazz and he became the most influential musician in the music's history. From the moment he picked up a trumpet in the 1920s, his virtuoso studio recordings charted a future for jazz in highly imaginative, emotionally charged improvisation. For this, he is revered by jazz fans around the globe. But Armstrong also became an enduring figure in popular music, thanks to his distinctively phrased bass singing and engaging personality. This very special DVD features a television special the master produced in the 1960's and stands as an extraordinary moment in TV history.
