    Pops is, by far, the best account of Louis Armstrong s life I ve ever encountered Terry Teachout s narrative is graceful and full of insight, and his esteem for Armstrong shines through every page But reading it, I also realized for the first time how challenging it must be to write about the man Armstrong was an undisputed genius He raised jazz above the level of novelty ...

    This book explains as well as anything I ve ever read the kinds of losses our country has suffered as a result of racism Louis Armstrong is probably the greatest American musician of the 20th century, yet he had to develop his style and his music to conform to the confines of racism.How muchcould he have done in a culture free of racism The most difficult thing for Teachout to explain is the relationship between Glaser, Armstrong s white manager and promoter, and Armstrong Armstrong hir This book explains as well as anything I ve ever read the kinds of losses our country has suffered as a result of racism Louis Armstrong is probably the greatest A...

    An exceptional biography of, in Teachout s lovely phrase, a major key artist The biography made our top 10 list for 2009.Louis Bayard reviewed it for us

    I didn t finish this book and I don t think I will The author is clearly a fan of the artist, but between the fawning over Armstrong and name dropping, it was difficult to get a handle on the subject At least I found out that Armstrong s mother and first wife were both prostitutes.
