Unknown photographer: An original b/w press photograph of the American jazz musician Louis Armstrong (1901–1971) during a performance around 1955. Back with notes, including cropping instructions and page location. Photo size 17.5×25.5 cm. Frame size 33×43 cm.

Louis Armstrong - whose popularity among jazz lovers has never been surpassed - can even today be identified on the basis of a few tones, both as a singer and an instrumentalist. And even though that younger generations of jazz musicians have found new inspiration, their role models - or perhaps the role models of the role models - have surely had Louis Armstrong as a role model!
