Armstrong was never interested in being too much in the public eye after he made history with NASA, although he was a spokesman for several American companies. Today, his words still resonate years after his death. He also served on corporate boards and worked on the commission that investigated the 1986 space shuttle Challenger disaster, among other things. That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind'. Armstrong's most famous quote doesn't quite make sense since "man" and "mankind" have the same meaning on. .

Louis Armstrong and his Hot Five. Armstrong's words made front-page news around the world. While in New York, Armstrong cut dozens of records as a sideman, creating inspirational jazz with other greats such as Sidney Bechet, and backing numerous blues singers including Bessie Smith. Back in Chicago, OKeh Records decided to let Armstrong make his first records with a band under his own name: Louis Armstrong and his Hot Five.

Louis Armstrong has been the subject of countless biographies and music histories. Yet scant attention has been paid to the remarkable array of writings he left behind. Louis Armstrong: In His Own Words introduces readers to a little-known facet of this master trumpeter, band leader, and entertainer. Based on extensive research through the Armstrong archives, this important volume includes some of his earliest letters, personal correspondence with one of his first biographers in 1943-44, autobiographical writings, magazine articles, and essays. Here are Armstrong's own thoughts on his life and career--from poverty in New Orleans to playing in the famous cafes, cabarets, and saloons of Storyville, from his big break in 1922 with the King Oliver band to his storming of New York, from his breaking of color barriers in Hollywood to the infamous King of the Zulus incident in 1949, and finally, to his last days in Queens, New York. Along the way Armstrong recorded touching portraits of his times and offered candid, often controversial, opinions about racism, marijuana, bebop, and other jazz artists such as Jelly Roll Morton and Coleman Hawkins. Indeed, these writings provide a balanced portrait of his life as a musician, entertainer, civil rights activist, and cultural icon. Armstrong's idiosyncratic use of language and punctuation have been preserved to give the reader an unvarnished portrayal of this compelling artist. This volume also includes introductions to the writings, as well as an annotated index of names and places significant to Armstrong's life.

Expensive book. Annotated to the max. I bought it because I wanted to read L.A.'s thoughts myself. Very glad he made the effort to write down his own memories. Thank you, Louis Armstrong.

c'mon, who can read about swiss kriss and not like it? Nice to read authentic stuff and not by some educated writer who'd mischaracterize the story and phrases by editing or simplifying too much. This is a very different writing style and gives one a great picture of a time gone by.

Get to know Louis the man
Andronrad
Like the jazz he played, Armstrong's words are lyrical and poetic. I got into the rhythm of the words and it made me feel as if he were talking to me personally, telling me his story. A must read for fans of Louis Armstrong.

Interesting glimpse into the personal life of famous "Satchmo". In some chapters, perhaps more than I was interested in knowing. Found the first chapter especially of interest to me.

Shows the man behind the trumpet: Mr. Armstrong spoke through his music but he also had a lot to offer via the written word. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
Wooden Purple Romeo
