The incredible untold story of Louis Armstrong, an American original, an African American cultural touchstone, one of the most important figures in the history of Jazz, and one of the greatest American entertainers of the 20th century. From a dirt-poor boy raised amid the hustlers, pimps, and whores of turn-of-the-century New Orleans, Louis Armstrong mastered his music and became a figure larger than life. He helped create that most American of music genres: Jazz. Over his lifetime, he became one of the most recognizable personalities on the planet. He traveled the world, conquered music, radio, and film, overcame prejudice, spread joy, and convinced us all that this really can be "a wonderful world."
