Satchmo and Happiness (On Flight Entertainment)

Can you possibly improve on Louis Armstrong? “Our Love is Here to Stay” croons on my iPod at 30,000 feet and I have to say, “this is heaven.” How do you describe Louis? Nobody blew the trumpet like him… and who in the world ever sang like him? And how did he do it for so long? He smilingly sings away with Ella on this track. Do you ever hear a man smile as much? I don’t deserve this moment! Ahhh… And now, “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off.”
