Information from the French Common Knowledge. Edit to localize it to your language.
Né à la Nouvelle Orléans, le 4 juillet 1900, Louis Daniel Armstrong, Pops ou Satchmo pour les jazzfans, est le premier grand personnage du jazz. Du style de ses débuts, celui des musiciens de sa ville, il s’échappa rapidement pour créer, tout en conservant les éléments fondamentaux, une manière d'un génial équilibre qui influença tous les solistes du jazz, quel que soit leur instrument. Les boppers et leurs continuateurs lui doivent encore quelque chose. Sans lui le jazz ne serait pas aujourd’hui une musique universelle. Louis Armstrong devint, dès les premières années trente, une vedette populaire. Il sut le rester jusqu’à sa mort, survenue le 6 juillet 1971. Trompettiste à la sonorité ample, brillante et pure, Armstrong chantait aussi admirablement, avec une voix rocailleuse et voilée qui heurtait les auditeurs non initiés mais communiquait une profonde émotion. (Guide Akaï du disque 1983 : Disques jazz blues pop rock, pp. 16-17)
