LOUIS ARMSTRONG and KENNY BAKER
Armstong and Baker sign on this album leaf for a fan, dated 1934!
Signature: "Best wishes/From/Louis Armstrong/29-1-34", 3x3 rose sheet affixed to 3x4½ album leaf. Also signed: "Kenny Baker 22-4-46" at left margin of mounting sheet. Ink note (unknown hand) at right margin of mounting sheet: "Louis Armstrong/World's Greatest Trumpeter". LOUIS "SATCHMO" ARMSTRONG (1901-1971), the virtuoso trumpeter and singer, was a master of improvisation, and many consider him the most influential figure in early history of jazz. On July 4, 2000, America marked the centennial of the birth of her most celebrated jazz musician. "Satchmo", short for "satchel mouth", popularized jazz singing, scat singing and improvised instrumental solos to the mainstream public. He was America's musical ambassador to the world, a multi-talented vocalist, trumpet player and entertainer who influenced scores of vocalists and musicians. In 1967, Satchmo recorded "It's A Wonderful World", which did not become a hit until 1987 (16 years after his death), when it was featured in the film Good Morning, Vietnam. "Hello, Dolly!", a tune that he hated the first time he heard it, became another signature song after his show-stopping rendition in the 1969 film starring Barbra Streisand. American singer and actor KENNETH LAURENCE "KENNY" BAKER (1912-1985) first gained notice as a tenor on Jack Benny's radio program. Baker, who was replaced by Dennis Day when he left the show in 1939, later became a featured performer on Fred Allen's radio show, Texaco Star Theater (1940-1942). He also appeared in a number of feature films from 1934-1947, including College Rhythm (1934), At the Circus (1939), The Harvey Girls (1946) and Calendar Girl (1947). Additionally, Baker and Mary Martin co-starred in the original Broadway production of One Touch of Venus. Lightly creased, rippled at left edge. Soiled at right margin, touching ink note. Otherwise, fine condition.
