LOUIS "SATCHMO" ARMSTRONG (1900-1971), 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. THE AVONS who signed this leaf were not the be-bop band that formed in 1954 nor the group that eventually became known as the Flames, who performed with James Brown. Lightly creased and soiled. Torn at left edge from removal from bound book. Overall, fine condition.
