“Louis Armstrong’s sound transcends time and style. He’s the most modern trumpet player we’ve ever heard and the most ancient…at the same time. He has light in his sound. It’s big and open with a deep spiritual essence - a sound closest to the Angel Gabriel. You can’t practice to get Louis Armstrong’s sound. It’s something within him that just came out.” Wynton Marsalis
“By the 1960s Pops had long ceased to be an innovator, but he was still a giant. If the repertoire and, indeed, some of the solos, were predictable, the unique warmth and magic survived intact.”
