An Incredible Biography of an Incredible Man
By Debra LaComette November 2016
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Upon reading this book, which I really took my time, I felt completely immersed in the life of Louis.
Louis from early on seem to live on the edge.
He was fortunate in the aspect that he was able to discover at an early age, what his passion was and how it would develop into a lifelong career despite the many obstacles he faced.
His attitude and his approach to life and its variables was so incredibly positive.
That may have very well been 50% of his success.
He also had the uncanny ability to ward off anger, hate and pure racism which seemed to consistently be one step in front of him.
Louis also seemed to be unusually obsessed with his horn and his productivity with it. It makes one wonder, where did he get that drive? It appeared to be there day in and day out, he could not stop or rest till the 24 hour day was completed.
I felt the author spent much time and effort researching his text and also had the ability to remain objective in his relaying of the information.
I would highly recommend this book, not only if one is interested in the history of Jazz, but also to appreciate Louis Armstrong, not only as an incredible musical genius but as an extraordinary human being as well.
