Above, a rare picture of a tender young Louis Armstrong before he became THE Maestro of Jazz, that most unique and first American storied art form. Note that picture was inscribed, “For my Dear wife, whom I’ll love until I die. From Louis Armstrong. 9/23/1929.”
Above, Louis Armstrong and wife, Lil Harden Armstrong. Lil, was herself, a gifted musician in her own rights and certainly a liberated, strong-willed woman in the male dominated world of Jazz.
