Thanks Louie

Louis Armstrong is great. American music owes a lot to this jazz musician. There were instrumentalists and singers that tried to sound like Louie's trumpet. So take a break on the wack bboy clips on youtube, and run a search for Louis Armstrong and take a glance on what real SOUL is. I can't imagine how music today would sound without the influence of Louis Armstrong. I get teary-eyed everytime I watch this trumpet solo. Thanks Pops.

Without Louie there wouldn't be swing, and jazz wouldn't be jazz. I can never get enough of this legend. Thanks for puttin this up Mane!
