Born in summertime
Scat singing trumpet player
Dethroned the Beatles
*Louis Armstrong aka “Satchmo” was among the first
to start scat singing, or at least, to make it popular.
His version of “Hello Dolly” went to #1 and knocked
the Beatles off their 14 week run at #1 with three
different songs. Just a side note, he met 2 popes!
Below is one of my favorite songs by Louis, with
Ella Fitzgerald “Summertime”
