Put in the most simple terms, if you are a player with even 5% of the style, conviction, and intent that Louis Armstrong brought to the table, you will make your living performing. He had it all: technique, phrasing, tone, style, desire to perform, everything. We can all learn from Louie! Amazing trumpet playing, amazing singing, amazing stage presence.
And the fact that this video has over 5 million views gives me hope for the human race.
Enjoy and have a great Labor Day!
(Talk about a burning trombone solo. Yikes!)
