Louis Armstrong & His All Stars




Louis Armstrong and his All Stars at two different locations in San Francisco 1954. doing what they loved and did best: playing Jazz of a quality defying description, and, as Louis would have said “pleasing the people”. There’s proof to spare that “pleasing the people” was fundamental to Louis; a pointer to the deep compassion for mankind which he felt and which brought him as much love as his consummate faultless artistry as a trumpet player.
