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. British pianist and orchestra leader JACK HYLTON (1892-1965), born John Greenhalgh Hilton, formed Jack Hylton & His Orchestra in 1921 and began his epic recording career in 1923. The band, which gave its first Royal Command Performance in 1926, was extremely popular in the British Isles and in Europe, but wasn't heard in the U.S. until its first broadcast in 1932. In 1935, Hylton disbanded his orchestra to travel to the U.S., where he led a group of American musicians. Upon his return to Britain, he reformed his orchestra, which was as successful as his previous one. In 1941, Hylton, who was losing band members to the military, became a theatrical producer. He appeared at a final Royal Command Performance in 1950. Lightly creased. Two slight nicks at left edge. Fine condition.
