Louis Armstrong: Ambassador Satchmo
Episode date - March 12, 2010
For our 18th episode covering the legendary life and music of Louis Armstrong, I allow renowned journalist Edward R. Murrow do most of the narration for me.
This is an era when Louis Armstrong’s artistic and social relevance begins to become common knowledge, and his status as a demi-god in the world of jazz history starts to solidify. There’s plenty of information here, and plenty of great music to support the accolades.
