Description

Unknown photographer: An original black-and-white press photograph of the American jazz musician Louis Armstrong (1901–1971) during studio recording in 1951. RCA Victor Records, Camden, New Jersey. Back with news telegramme as well editorial notes. Photo size 25.5×20.5 cm. Frame size 43×33 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!
