Louis armstrong and his all-stars louis armstrong and his all stars mack the knife


Armstrong was born in the poorest area of New Orleans. His mother raised him as best she could after his father abandoned the family when Armstrong was a baby. As a youth, he often sang on the streets in a vocal group for pennies. He loved hearing the many brass bands that filled the city and got excited whenever a parade was nearby. Louis did odd jobs for a local Jewish family that loved him and bought him his first cornet when he was ten. On New Year's Eve of 1912, Armstrong shot a pistol in the air in celebration. He was immediately arrested and, when the court decided that his mother could not raise him properly, he was sent to a Waif’s home for orphans. Life looked bleak for the youngster but music turned out to be his salvation.
