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. Actress KIM NOVAK, born in 1933, was a Hollywood sex symbol in the 1950s and early 1960s. The year after making her film debut in 1954's The French Line, Novak got her big break in Picnic. Later noted for her role in Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 film, Vertigo, the actress appeared in a number of feature films, including The Man With the Golden Arm (1955), The Eddy Duchin Story (1956), Pal Joey (1957), Bell, Book and Candle (1958), Strangers When We Meet (1960), Of Human Bondage (1964) and The Amorous Adventures of Moll Flanders (1965), as well as made-for-TV movies.
