The biography of Louis Armstrong by Alain Gerber , illustrated by Camilo Sanin and accompanied by 2 compact discs.

Louis Armstrong is the inventor of jazz . Originally from the poor suburbs of New Orleans , he transformed the muddled polyphony of American music at the beginning of the century into a universal musical language with accents sometimes triumphant, sometimes heartbreaking, always profoundly human, whose richness of inspiration would reflect on the all of American popular music of the 20th century.

CD1 highlights the incomparable expressive qualities of his singing , in the most varied contexts, while CD2 explores the vibrant New Orleans fiber of the trumpeter , surrounded by accomplices in absolute symbiosis with his art.
