This is the first work by Giddens I have read and his enthusiasm jumps from the page. His argument is cogent and richly supported by analysis. My only wish is for more.

This is one of the best books about Louis I've read and the reason is simple. Giddins clearly lays out the reasons why Pops was the greatest influence on modern music that this country has produced. His love for the man and the music comes through on every page. This is a wonderful almost poetic homage to a great and deserving artist. I loved the Bergreen biography and rated that 5 stars as well. That book is a fine chronological story of a fascinating life. This book is a musical biography that truly captures the essence of Louis Armstrong as well as anything written posthumously can be expected to. If you're a fan of Louis Armstrong you cannot afford to miss this. If you are curious as to why Louis Armstrong has become such an American icon this book will provide the answer.

It wasn't until I watched Ken Burns JAZZ that I realized what a great and pivotal talent Pops Armstrong was. When I saw his biography offered on my Kindle, I jumped at the chance to read it. The author cuts cleanly through the mythology and misinterpretations of his life, and through his, the authors, obvious extensive knowledge of music, manages to convey what an ingenious talent Louis Armstrong was.

Giddins clearly LOVES Louis Armstrong, and he wrote a very nice book about him as a result.
Siramath
This is a good beginning to understanding the genious of Louis Armstrong. It is a good accompaniment to Ken Burns' series on jazz.

I loved every minute of reading this book, and felt that the author obviously shared my amazement at the talent and presence of one of America's greatest.
