In Sunday’s New York Times, Giovanni Russonello writes a splendid short history of Louis Armstrong, and shares news about how Armstrong’s personal writings, recordings and artifacts have been digitized, allowing people who register access to his great body of work via the Louis Armstrong House Museum’s website.
In addition to Russonello’s report, there are several wonderful short recordings of Armstrong in the Times article (including him playing along with a Ray Martino recording!), and the Museum site offers a wealth of glorious history.
