Louis Armstrong (1901–1971) overcame an impoverished background to became one of the greatest of jazz musicians. Many books have been written about his early life and mid-career, but this biography focuses on his last 25 years when he was often regarded as a mere popular entertainer. Readable and sympathetic, it returns to such classic recordings as Hello, Dolly! and Mack the Knife to reveal their true subtlety and depth of expression. Felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge and slightly off-mint.
