    Yes, he and several others are only known by those if us who know the history of jazz. Armstrong went from clubs to radio to recording to TV to movies, and developed a huge following by his musicianship and his personality - one of the biggest jazz personality stars. If you watch the first year of the series Grantchester, the hunky vicar drinks and listen to Bechet in every episode.

    because he didn't have the 2nd career as a pop singer. if louis armstrong had stopped at hot 5s and 7s and never did what a wonderful world etc, their legacies would be similar.

      This was a MAN! Another reason who you have so few best sheers, or of over one MILLION PLUS responses.
