Description by OLDIES.com:
Discover jazz great Louis Armstrong all over again. Come inside and make yourself at home - the Armstrong home. Louis Armstrong - The Offstage Story of Satchmo
offers an intimate, backstage look at the legendary trumpeter through never-before-published photos, writings, and recordings.
As the official book of the Louis Armstrong House & Archives, it eschews the famous photos seen worldwide and showcases the most intriguing and revealing items in the collection. The private, funny, and touching characteristics of Armstrong's life reveal themselves through his personal collection of photographs, tape recordings, collages, and scrapbooks.
