A near Fine copy (Fine apart from some light spots to top edge) with VG+ dustjacket which is price clipped. 256 pages. Illustrated throughout. Much has been written about louis Armstrong, in books, magazines, radio and television shows; perhaps more than any other musician in jazz. Yet, oddly, little is known about him. What was he like offstage? How did he regard his role in music and in society? What was the secret of his long lasting success? What is the explanation of his genius? This book answers these questions, embracing his views on work, creative music-making, politics, marriage, home life, racialism,travelling, criticism, modern jazz and rock, and a dozen other topics. It covers Louis in print, on film, on record and on stage, and tells of his brushes with mobsters in the early 1930's. These recollections have never before appeared in print. **** NOT EX LIB **** ** A HEAVY VOLUME OF 0.97 KILO UNPACKED WEIGHT WHICH MAY REQUIRE EXTRA SHIPPING COST ****
