What a voice. What a musician. What a legend. What a man.

I do get instant goose bumps whenever I hear these magnificent Louis Armstrong classics! Such a magnificent voice.

Everybody around the world, still recognizes that voice instantly, from the old to the very young. The man just isnt able to sing a false note and has such power and warmth in his voice, that is simply to die for!

Jazz musician Wayne Shorter narrates this documentary, which consists of a lot of short interview clips and sound recordings from Louis Armstrong himself, throughout his long and glorious carreer. I liked that way of telling his story about his life. What better way than let the artist himself speak.

I wish we got to hear more about his youth though and why and how he got into music, besides being surrounded by musicians on every street corner in New Orleans and being given a hornet at a young age, which he cherished and which he studied intensely. The rest is history...

Already at a very young age he was known for reaching powerful high notes, which nobody else could play. Even Wayne Shorter, not the least of the jazz musicians, even he simply cant reach many notes Louis Armstrong could reach easily!

This documentary focusses mostly on Louis Armstron as a person and his rise to fame and the focus is not so much on his records, which I guess was a choice that didnt turn out badly.

The documentary ends with a portrait of the civil rights movement during the late sixties in which Armstrong publicly didnt choose sides. He was attacked for that back then by some members of the black community, but in hindsight Louis Armstrong probably did more for building bridges between races than he was given credit for.

Recommended for all the fans! And now I am gonna shut up and listen to one (of many) of his terrific songs!!!
