Louis Armstrong Wiki Biography

Louis Armstrong – nicknamed “Satchmo”, short for satchelmouth – was born on 4 August 1901, in New Orleans, Louisiana USA, into a poor family – in fact the grandson of slaves. He is still regarded as one of the most influential and famous musicians of all time. Louis was known for his extraordinary talent in playing the trumpet and cornet, as well as singing and some acting appearances. He and his music had a huge impact on jazz in particular and on popular music in general. During his career, Louis won the Grammy Award and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Louisian Music Hall of Fame, Hollywood Walk of Fame and other honorary halls of fame. It is clear that everyone in the world recognizes his impact on the music industry and respect him as one of the best musicians in history.

So how rich was Louis Armstrong? It is estimated that Louis’ net worth was $10 million, of course worth much more over 40 years ago. Despite the fact that nowadays musicians earn much more, no one can deny the fact that his influence is not measured by the amount of money he gained but by his work and dedication to music. Clearly, Armstrong gained this sum of money through his performances and because of his growing fan base. Although his net worth will not grow anymore, his influence and work will never be forgotten. People all around the world know who the name of Louis Armstrong.

Louis Armstrong Net Worth $10 Million

Armstrong’s childhood was very difficult as he was born in a poor family and experienced many struggles. His mother worked as a prostitute and Louis tried all he could to help her. When he started attending school he was introduced to music and immediately showed a lot of interest to music and dance. When Louis was only 11 years old, he became a singer in the streets, and then played in various groups, step by step developed his skills of playing cornet. In 1922 Louis became a part of the band called the “Creole Jazz Band”. This was the time when Armstrong’s net worth began growing and he did not have to work additional jobs in order to support himself. Soon he started recording music and slowly his name became known and himself popular among different producers. He soon began working with Fletcher Henderson and participated in various performances.

In 1925 Louis recorded such songs “West End Blues”, “Potato Head Blues” and “Muggles”. Later these songs became the base of future jazz music. Armstrong played together with Kid Ory, Johnny St. Cyr, his wife and Johnny Dodds. This band became very popular and this had a huge impact on the growth of Louis Armstrong’s net worth. Louis became famous not only for his incredible playing skills, but also for his extraordinary manner of singing. There is no surprise why he had so many fans as his style of music was something very fresh to the listeners. In 1947 Louis created the band called “Louis Armstrong and his All Stars”. He had an opportunity to work with Trummy Young, Barney Bigard, Cozy Cole and many other musicians. In 1964 he released one of his most famous hits, called “Hello, Dolly!”. He had many performances and tours, so his net worth grew with almost every hour. Unfortunately, Armstrong died in 1971 of a heart attack. Despite this fact, his heritage to the music industry and jazz music is incalculable.

If to talk about Louis’ personal life, it can be said that in 1918 he married Daisy Parker, and they adopted an orphaned disabled boy of his cousin, who Louis cared for his whole life, but in 1923 they divorced. One year later, Armstrong married Lil Hardin Armstrong, and she had a huge influence on his career and its development, but the marriage ended in 1938, and Louis married Alpha Smith(1938-42). His last wife was Lucille Wilson, with whom he lived until passing away in 1971.

All in all, Louis Armstrong is one of the most influential personalities in the music industry. He changed a lot during his career. That is why his name is known even now, and his music is considered to be extraordinary. Hopefully, his will be remembered for a very long time and his work will never be forgotten.

1Distinctively gravelly singing voice
1A lotta cats copy the Mona Lisa, but people still line up to see the original.
2[on being asked about his #1 song "Hello Dolly"] It sure feels good to be up there with [The Beatles].
3If it wasn't for jazz, there wouldn't be no rock and roll.
4There's some folks, that, if they don't know, you can't tell 'em.
5What is jazz? Man, if you have to ask you'll never know.
6All music is folk music. I ain't never heard no horse sing a song.
7I never tried to prove nothing, just wanted to give a good show. My life has always been my music, it's always come first, but the music ain't worth nothing if you can't lay it on the public. The main thing is to live for that audience, 'cause what you're there for is to please the people.
1June 26, 1950, he recorded the first American version of the French songs "La Vie en rose" and "C'est si bon". "La Vie en rose" was written by Louiguy (music) and Édith Piaf (lyrics) in 1946 and "C'est si bon" was written by Henri Betti (music) and André Hornez (lyrics) in 1947. The English lyrics of "La Vie en rose" were written by Mack David and the English lyrics of "C'est si bon" were written by Jerry Seelen. The recording took place in New York with Sy Oliver and his Orchestra.
2Inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame in 2007 and the Long Island Hall of Fame in 2008.
3He was laid to rest at the Flushing Cemetery, Section 9 in Flushing, Queens, New York City not too far from his home in Corona, Queens. His tombstone is a red granite, emblazoned simply "Satchmo" Louis Armstrong with a beautiful white trumpet figure laden on top. Buried with him is his last of four wives, Lucille Armstrong who died in 1983.
4His home, when he died, was in the Corona section of Queens County, New York City. Today it remains a museum where fans can check out his residence and it's belongings as a citizen of New York City.
5Doc Louis, the trainer character in the boxing video game Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! (1987), is based on his likeness.
6He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Recording at 7018 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on February 8, 1960.
7Was only 16 when he married Daisy Parker.
8The slang terms "cat" meaning a man about town and "chops" meaning a musician's playing ability were first coined by him.
9Embittered by the treatment of blacks in his hometown of New Orleans, he chose to be buried in New York City.
10Refused to go a State Department-sponsored concert tour of the Soviet Union in 1959 because he felt the administration of President Dwight D. Eisenhower wasn't doing enough to promote civil rights legislation.
11Although the term didn't exist during his lifetime, there is much evidence to indicate that he may have been bulemic. He believed that it didn't matter what you ate, as long as you purged yourself regularly afterwards. He would do that with the help of an herbal laxative called Swiss Kriss, and even handed out mimeographed sheets on his diet regimen to friends. In all probability, this contributed to the health problems he suffered in the last years of his life.
12Interestingly enough, Armstrong had never heard of either the song or show "Hello, Dolly!" when he recorded it. To him, it was just the lead song on an album of show tunes, and he was more surprised than anyone when both the single and the album (Kapp 1964) went to #1 on the Billboard charts. What makes this accomplishment all the more remarkable is that it happened at the height of the so-called "British Invasion", when The Beatles and other British rock groups seemed to be dominating every aspect of the pop music charts. Armstrong later repeated his hit in the show's film version (Hello, Dolly! (1969)), singing it to Barbra Streisand.
13Although his career as a recording artist dates back to the 1920s, when he made now-classic recordings with Joe 'King' Oliver, Bessie Smith and the legendary Jimmie Rodgers, as well as his own Hot Five and Hot Seven groups, his biggest hits as a recording artist came comparatively late in his life: "Mack the Knife" (1956), "Hello, Dolly!" (a #1 hit in 1964), "What a Wonderful World" (1968) and "We Have All the Time in the World" (over 20 years after his death).
14For most of his life, Louis Armstrong always gave July 4, 1900, as his birthdate, possibly because it was easy to remember. In all likelihood, he probably believed it himself. It wasn't until many years after his death that a birth record was found confirming the correct date as August 4, 1901.
15He was nicknamed "Pops" because that is the name he addressed everyone by. Later on in his career, he picked up the sobriquet "America's Jazz Ambassador" because of his frequent jazz concerts around the world.
16Inducted into the Big Band and Jazz Hall of Fame in 1978 (charter member).
17Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990 (under the category Early Influence).
18Pictured on a 32¢ US commemorative postage stamp in the Legends of American Music series, issued 1 September 1995.
19Satchmo became Armstrong's nickname after his 1932 Grand Tour of Europe. A London music magazine editor wrote "Satchmo" in an article -- probably because he couldn't read his garbled notes. Up until that time Armstrong's nickname was Satchelmouth.
