Louis Armstrong Biography

Louis Armstrong Net Value: Louis Armstrong was an American jazz trumpeter and singer who had a net well worth of $10 million dollars. Louis Armstrong (August 4, 1901 – July 6, 1971) was created in New Orleans, Louisiana to an extremely poor family members. The grandson of slaves, Armstrong spent his childhood and youth in intense poverty, specifically after his dad became popular with another woman. Therefore, Louis and his small sister Beatrice were raised by their mom and grandmother. Already sense the hardships of existence, Louis was eleven when he stop school to make money for his family members by singing in a quartet of males who were carrying out on the road. This was the entire year when Armstrong was initially launched with the cornet by cornet participant Bunk Johnson. Nonetheless it was also enough time when he began getting into trouble. Quickly, he headed back again to Chicago to play along with his Warm Five and Warm Seven organizations, creating such hits as “Potato Mind Blues,” “Muggles” and “West End Blues. He actually performed with regional jazz bands when he got the opportunity. It had been Joe “King” Oliver who 1st recognized Louis’ skill. The world lost an excellent man and rarely skilled musician when Armstrong passed away in his rest from a coronary attack on July 6, 1971. After his tutor remaining for Chicago, the world´s middle of jazz at that time, Louis started carrying out on steam boats which were touring along the Mississippi River. In fact, there was no individual that could play like Louis at that time! In 1922, Louis visited Chicago to become listed on Oliver’s band, with which he played for just two years. For his trademark music genres, they are dixieland, jazz, swing, traditional pop. There, he switched to playing the trumpet and created energetic and creative design that caught the hearing of the brand new York jazz picture. This helped him hone his abilities and even learn to go through music. After spending a while in a house for troubled children, he continued to work at day time and develop his music abilities during the night.” The rhythms that he produced along the way became the typical and the agenda for jazz musicians for several years to arrive. In 1924, Louis currently headed to ny at the demand of acclaimed NY bandleader Fetcher Henderson.

Interesting Facts

#Fact
1 He was the first American singer to have recorded the international song "C'est si bon" by Henri Betti and André Hornez with the Orchestra of Sy Oliver 26 June 1950 in New York. For this first American version of this French song, the lyrics were written by Jerry Seelen.
2 Inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame in 2007 and the Long Island Hall of Fame in 2008.
3 He was laid to rest at the Flushing Cemetery, Section 9 in Flushing, Queens, New York City not too far from his home in Corona, Queens. His tombstone is a red granite, emblazoned simply "Satchmo" Louis Armstrong with a beautiful white trumpet figure laden on top. Buried with him is his last of four wives, Lucille Armstrong who died in 1983.
4 His home, when he died, was in the Corona section of Queens County, New York City. Today it remains a museum where fans can check out his residence and it's belongings as a citizen of New York City.
5 Doc Louis, the trainer character in the boxing video game Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! (1987), is based on his likeness.
6 He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Recording at 7018 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on February 8, 1960.
7 Was only 16 when he married Daisy Parker.
8 The slang terms "cat" meaning a man about town and "chops" meaning a musician's playing ability were first coined by him.
9 Embittered by the treatment of blacks in his hometown of New Orleans, he chose to be buried in New York City.
10 Refused to go a State Department-sponsored concert tour of the Soviet Union in 1959 because he felt the administration of President Dwight D. Eisenhower wasn't doing enough to promote civil rights legislation.
11 Although the term didn't exist during his lifetime, there is much evidence to indicate that he may have been bulemic. He believed that it didn't matter what you ate, as long as you purged yourself regularly afterwards. He would do that with the help of an herbal laxative called Swiss Kriss, and even handed out mimeographed sheets on his diet regimen to friends. In all probability, this contributed to the health problems he suffered in the last years of his life.
12 Interestingly enough, Armstrong had never heard of either the song or show "Hello, Dolly!" when he recorded it. To him, it was just the lead song on an album of show tunes, and he was more surprised than anyone when both the single and the album (Kapp 1964) went to #1 on the Billboard charts. What makes this accomplishment all the more remarkable is that it happened at the height of the so-called "British Invasion", when The Beatles and other British rock groups seemed to be dominating every aspect of the pop music charts. Armstrong later repeated his hit in the show's film version (Hello, Dolly! (1969)), singing it to Barbra Streisand.
13 Although his career as a recording artist dates back to the 1920s, when he made now-classic recordings with Joe 'King' Oliver, Bessie Smith and the legendary Jimmie Rodgers, as well as his own Hot Five and Hot Seven groups, his biggest hits as a recording artist came comparatively late in his life: "Mack the Knife" (1956), "Hello, Dolly!" (a #1 hit in 1964), "What a Wonderful World" (1968) and "We Have All the Time in the World" (over 20 years after his death).
14 For most of his life, Louis Armstrong always gave July 4, 1900, as his birthdate, possibly because it was easy to remember. In all likelihood, he probably believed it himself. It wasn't until many years after his death that a birth record was found confirming the correct date as August 4, 1901.
15 He was nicknamed "Pops" because that is the name he addressed everyone by. Later on in his career, he picked up the sobriquet "America's Jazz Ambassador" because of his frequent jazz concerts around the world.
16 Inducted into the Big Band and Jazz Hall of Fame in 1978 (charter member).
17 Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990 (under the category Early Influence).
18 Pictured on a 32¢ US commemorative postage stamp in the Legends of American Music series, issued 1 September 1995.
19 Satchmo became Armstrong's nickname after his 1932 Grand Tour of Europe. A London music magazine editor wrote "Satchmo" in an article -- probably because he couldn't read his garbled notes. Up until that time Armstrong's nickname was Satchelmouth.

1 A lotta cats copy the Mona Lisa, but people still line up to see the original.
2 [on being asked about his #1 song "Hello Dolly"] It sure feels good to be up there with [The Beatles].
3 If it wasn't for jazz, there wouldn't be no rock and roll.
4 There's some folks, that, if they don't know, you can't tell 'em.
5 What is jazz? Man, if you have to ask you'll never know.
6 All music is folk music. I ain't never heard no horse sing a song.
7 I never tried to prove nothing, just wanted to give a good show. My life has always been my music, it's always come first, but the music ain't worth nothing if you can't lay it on the public. The main thing is to live for that audience, 'cause what you're there for is to please the people.
