Tributo a Louis Armstrong

Props For Pops
If Louis Armstrong were still alive, he would have celebrated his 100th birthday on July 4, 2000. Satch believed his birth date to be July 4, 1900. A baptismal certificate, indicating a birth date of August 4, 1901, was discovered in 1983, 12 years after his death (July 6, 1971). However you interpret this, Louis' date of birth is irrelevent. The bottom line was the music and the man. The dawn of the new century is an ideal opportunity to pay tribute to a legend -- jazz progenitor and goodwill ambassador Louis (aka "Satchmo"; aka "Pops") Armstrong. We humbly offer the appended info and reference links on "Satchmo The Great" in his honor. We love ya Pops!
