Louis Armstrong didn't invent jazz, but he is the acknowledged father. From humble beginnings in the notorious Storyville district of New Orleans he rose from singing on street corners to playing with the top hot jazz musicians of the time. It is impossible to overstate Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong's importance in jazz: he invented scat singing, he was the first black jazz-man to be welcomed in the upper-echelons of white society and his solos are still dissected and analyzed over 75 years after they were recorded.
