Mid-Week Song


The immortal jazz great Louis Armstrong was born in New Orleans 120 years ago today. He is widely regarded as one of the most influential and talented jazz musicians, with a career that spanned 50 years and different styles of jazz. His versions of "I Ain't Got Nobody,"  "Hello, Dolly,!" "What A Wonderful World," and so many more recordings made him a hugely popular and successful cultural icon, and one of the greatest ambassadors of jazz. As our tune today, we're featuring his 1950 version of "La Vie En Rose." (Note: TMC is running movies with Armstrong in them today -- good stuff.)
