First U.S. Edition. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “For nearly half a century Louis Armstrong’s name spelled magic to millions of people throughout the world. A titan who towered over the first fifty years of jazz history. Louis — or Satchmo in the affections of his vast international audiences — was not only the single most popular figure in American music; he was also the most influential of all jazzmen. Yet so powerful were his talents and his personality that he transcended jazz to influence the entire field of Western popular music; his expressive features, his short dynamic figure, his glittering trumpet tone, above all, perhaps, his abrasive voice, were familiar to film-goers, television-watchers and concert patrons from Toulouse to Tokyo.
