If anybody was Mr Jazz it was Louis Armstrong.
He was the epitome of jazz and always will be.
He is what I call an American standard,
an American original.

Louis Armstrong, the world’s most famous jazz musician, was an international celebrity who could have lived anywhere.
Yet in 1943, he and his wife, Lucille, settled in a modest house in Corona, Queens, where they lived for the remainder of their lives. No one has lived in the house since the Armstrongs, and the house and its furnishings remain very much as they were during Louis and Lucille’s lifetime. Today, the Louis Armstrong House Museum is open to the public, offering guided tours of Louis’s longtime home. On the tour, audio clips from Louis’s homemade recordings are played, and visitors hear Louis practicing his trumpet, enjoying a meal, or talking with his friends.
