Louis Armstrong attentif aux nouveaux talentsLouis Armstrong (La Nouvelle-Orleans, 1901/1971)
Trompettiste de jazz américain.
Louis Armstrong, en tournée à Las Vegas après avoir triomphé à l’Empire Room du Waldorf Astoria, répond à un musicien qui lui a adressé ses compositions.
"I've received your record and will give it a big listening to when I return back home in Corona N.Y. I only have my portable Tape Recorder with me, on this trip, witch is only a two weeks' engagement. I can't play the Record of yours' otherwise - elsewhere because, right now, I am as busy (?) as a Cat on a Tin Roof [...]. I can relax at home an lend all ears to your platter. One too many sweet hearts' it sounds like a good one already [...]".
