Biography

New Orleans, Louisiana, USA
Louis Armstrong grew up poor in a single-parent household. He was 13 when he celebrated the New Year by running out on the street and firing a pistol that belonged to the current man in his mother's life.

At 18 he got a job in the Kid Ory Band in New Orleans. Read more...
