Louis Armstrong        1901 [?] -1971

 

jazz trumpeter and singer

 

 

Jazz music,

probably

the only art form

ever wholly originated

in America,

and Louis Armstrong

grew up together

in New Orleans.

 

It was

in a seamy slum there

that Mr. Armstrong

learned to love

and play jazz

in the company

of gamblers, pimps

and prostitutes.

 

(...)

 

Mr. Armstrong's

early years spent

in New Orleans,

were marked

by extreme poverty

and squalor,

but he emerged able

to recall them

without self-pity

and even

with good humor.

 

"I was a Southern Doodle Dandy

born on the Fourth of July, 1900,"

said Daniel Louis Armstrong.

 

"My mother Mary Ann

--we called her Mayann--

was living

in a two-room shack

in James Alley,

in the Back O' Town

colored section

of New Orleans.

 

It was

in a tough block,

all them hustlers

and their pimps

and gamblers

with their knives,

between Gravier

and Perdido Streets."
