Louis Armstrong

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”
