Louis Armstrong / Life / 1966 Framed and ready to Hang 24X27
This is where Louis is Quoted ‘I never Did Want To Be No Big Star’
As Armstrong emerged into the light, arms slightly raised, palms out, he appeared transfigured. The ashen color was gone, the eyes blazed, the smile blinded. When he sang, he engaged the crowd eyeball to eyeball. When he blew trumpet, he kept his eyes open, but the pupils rolled upward as though he were no longer in the room. His huge tone was as golden and unspotted as ever.
People who saw Armstrong perform in the latter half of his life often found their expectations exceeded.
