Bastards from the start : apprenticeship in New Orleans, 1901-1919 -- All those tall buildings : leaving home, 1919-1924 -- A flying cat : Harlem and Chicago, 1924-1927 -- It's got to be art : with Earl Hines, 1928 -- The way a trumpet should play : on the move, 1929-1930 -- Don't let 'em cool off, boys : on the run, 1930-1932 -- I didn't blow the horn : crisis, 1932-1935 -- Always have a white man : with Joe Glaser, 1935-1938 -- The people who criticize : losing touch, 1938-1947 -- Keep the horn percolating : renewal, 1947-1954 -- The nice taste we leave : ambassador Satch, 1954-1963 -- I don't sigh for nothing : at the top, 1963-1971. Louis Armstrong was the greatest jazz musician of the twentieth century and a giant of modern American culture. Offstage he was witty, introspective and unexpectedly complex, a beloved colleague with an explosive temper whose larger-than-life personality was tougher and more sharp-edged than his worshipping fans ever knew. Wall Street Journal arts columnist Terry Teachout has drawn on new sources unavailable to previous biographers, including hundreds of private recordings of backstage and after-hours conversations, to craft a sweeping new narrative biography of this towering figure that shares, for the first time, full, accurate versions of such storied events as Armstrong's quarrel with President Eisenhower and his decision to break up his big band.--From publisher description ; Includes bibliographical references (p.
