Louis Armstrong – Dream a Little Dream


 

Louis Armstrong (1901-1971)

Louis Daniel Armstrong (August 4, 1901 – July 6, 1971) nicknamed Satchmo or Pops according to Wikipedia, was an American jazz trumpeter and singer from New Orleans, Louisiana.

Coming to prominence in the 1920s as an “inventive” cornet and trumpet player, Armstrong was a foundational influence on jazz, shifting the music’s focus from collective improvisation to solo performers. With his distinctive gravelly voice, Armstrong was also an influential singer, demonstrating great dexterity as an improviser, bending the lyrics and melody of a song for expressive purposes. He was also greatly skilled at scat singing, or vocalizing using syllables instead of actual lyrics.
