“The memory of things gone is important to a jazz musician.” — Louis Armstrong
The great Satchmo and his music are amongst those things now gone. But they shall stay in our memories. Not only does his music continue to decorate our lives daily but it will also resonate with future generations.
In his film Manhattan, Woody Allen cites Louis Armstrong’s “Potato Head Blues” on his short list of reasons why life is worth living.
Maybe you don’t have time today to watch an old black and white picture that has been frozen in time…That’s OK!
Take a couple minutes to listen to this ditty from Louis and it will transport you to a fun time in music and cinema, if only for a moment or two.
