Louis Daniel Armstrong (August 4, 1901 – July 6, 1971), nicknamed Satchmo, Satch, and Pops, was an American trumpeter, composer, vocalist and occasional actor who was one of the most influential figures in jazz. His career spanned five decades, from the 1920s to the 1960s, and different eras in the history of jazz. In 2017, he was inducted into the Rhythm & Blues Hall of Fame.

The young Louis Armstrong is represented on his recordings of the 1920s and 1930s. He can be heard with King Oliver and Fletcher Henderson as well as with his Hot Five, Hot Seven and with the band of Luis Russell. Several big bands such as the orchestra of Bennie Moten, which was the nucleus of the Count Basie band played an important part in the twenties. The saxophone colossus played with many giants of jazz, among others John Coltrane. 9 people found this helpful.

Reed master Sidney Bechet can claim to be the first great jazz soloist, winning international acclaim before his fellow New Orleans giant, Louis Armstrong. Geoffrey Smith salutes a genius who inspired saxophonists from Johnny Hodges to John Coltrane. Album: Ken Burns Jazz: The Definitive Sidney Bechet. Label: Columbia/Legacy.
