New Orleans - with its savage, joyous struggles for existence; its vigorous, warm personalities, its brutalities, its poignancy. New Orleans, the cradle of jazz and of all-time king of jazz - Louis Armstrong. This is a one-man success story with a difference, for Armstrong came up the hard way, and Satchmo gives us here the whole incredible, vital tingling Armstrong history from the slums of his childhood through reformatory to the time he left his fabulous Mississippi city and headed out trumpeting for Chicago and the world.
