Description
Prodigiously researched and richly detailed, this is a comprehensive account of the remarkable final 25 years of the life and art of one of America’s greatest and most beloved musical icons. Ricky Riccardi—jazz scholar and musician—focuses on a time in which Louis Armstrong was often dismissed as a buffoonish, if popular, entertainer, and shows us instead the inventiveness and depth of expression that his music evinced during this time. These are the years when Armstrong entertained crowds around the world, collaborated with Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, and Dave Brubeck, and recorded his highest-charting hits, including “Mack the Knife” and “Hello, Dolly!”—burnishing and enhancing his legacy as one of jazz’s most influential figures.
