Glad you've found one of the (many) all time greats...:-)

I love Satchmo but don't stop there, if you want the old style jazz check out Bennie Goodman, Count Basie, Duke Ellington and then start looking at some of the be-bop guys or the cool jazz like Miles Davies and Dave Brubeck.
That said I find the later schools of freeform jazz to be pretentious noodling of the worst kind that is barely classifiable as music.

I saw`and heard him live at one of the first concerts after the Musicians' Union lifted the ban on US jazz musicians, sometime in the fifties

It's an evening that lives with me yet.

I don't get most Jazz, never have, probably never will.

I thought everybody loved Satchmo. To realise that there are people out there who haven't heard of him, is a bit of a shock.

perpetual motion. Find some of his music where he is joined by Ella Fitzgerald... You will realise that you have been missing a treat.

Only a recent jazz convert, but I do like Armstrong's music. Also like listening to Bunny Berigan, and one of my favourite vocalists, Lee Wiley. Not easy to obtain CDs of the latter two from high street stores. Pot luck finding anything..............
