New Orleans is a city that enjoys a good time. Good food, good company, and good music. A genre all of its own, jazz, was born here as a mix with African, Cuban, blues, and rock n roll influences.
Louis Armstrong was known as “Satchmo,” short for “satchel mouth,” because of his trademark infectious wide grin. A N’Awlins native, he began singing on the street corners at the age of six and by the end of his life, he was revered as the “Father of Jazz.”
Musicians I, Musicians II, and Satchmo are available in the note card series, “All That Jazz.”
