Description - Swing That Music by Louis Armstrong

The first published writing of the jazz giant, covering his life from his days in New Orleans through his success in Chicago and New York.. The first autobiography of a jazz musician, Louis Armstrongs Swing That Music is a milestone in jazz literature. Armstrong wrote most of the biographical material, which is of a different nature and scope than that of his other, later autobiography, Satchmo: My Life in New Orleans (also published by Da Capo/Perseus Books Group). Satchmo covers in intimate detail Armstrongs life until his 1922 move to Chicago; but Swing That Music also covers his days on Chicagos South Side with King Oliver, his courtship and marriage to Lil Hardin, his 1929 move to New York, the formation of his own band, his European tours, and his international success. One of the most earnest justifications ever written for the new style of music then called swing but more broadly referred to as Jazz, Swing That Music is a biography, a history, and an entertainment that really swings.
