Louis Armstrong - autographs
Did you know that Louis Armstrong, the famous jazz trumpeter and singer, got his start as a street performer in New Orleans? Louis Armstrong was born on August 4th, 1901 in a poor neighborhood of New Orleans. He began playing the cornet (a type of trumpet) at the age of 12 and quickly learned how to play by ear. Louis’ early life was difficult – he had several run-ins with the law, and spent time in jail. However, this didn’t stop him from becoming one of the most legendary musicians of all time!
While he is no longer with us, fans can still enjoy his music and collectibles associated with him. Autographs and signed items from Louis Armstrong are highly sought-after by collectors.
