What We Play Is Life
- Louis Armstrong
Satchmo: The Wonderful World and Art of Louis Armstrong (Abrams)
Steven Brower pulls together some of the 100s of collages Jazz great Louis Armstrong created by the 1950s into a book worth viewing. Brower uses his pages to draw the connection between Mr Armstrong's musical and artistic styling by comparing both to jazz improvisions or "rag" as the great musician called it.
