Louie Armstrong / Aug 4, 1901 - July 6, 1971

Happy birthday to the great Satchmo, Louis Armstrong, the amazing New Orleans jazz trumpeter who's 1920's bands stand among the most important groups in the history of American music.

I know he always said he was born on the 4th of July, but we are giving him the birthday nod on his true date of birth, today. So smoke a reefer and listen to the sound bend around.
