'Pops' Culture

I loved that "Treme" gave proper props to Fess (Prof. Longhair) but not nearly enough props for Pops--since native Louis Armstrong was not only the most influential American musician but also singer of the century.  Now my friend Tim Page reviews a new bio of Louis at the Wash Post--focusing on those landmark 1920s-1930s year in Chicago.  So here's Louis Armstrong from 1929, with just two  of his revolutionary tunes that changed American music forever and made him the true Music Man of the 20th Century.   Young 'uns, check out all of his recordings from 1925-1930.
