Trumpet Inspiration 41

Louis Armstrong was undoubtedly one of the most important vocalists and instrumentalists in the early decades of jazz. Nearly all jazz trumpeters (as well as other instruments) can trace the lineage of their influences back to him. West End Blues is one of his most iconic tracks, but I encourage you to check out many of his other recordings (there are a lot!) to fully understand the depth and range of his playing and singing.
