Louis Armstrong (also known as Satchmo, Satch and Pops, Satchmo being a fusion of the words satchel-mouth) was a trumpeter, bandleader, singer, soloist, film star and comedian. Considered one of the most influential artists to change the face of jazz history, he is known for songs like "Star Dust," "La Via En Rose" and "What a Wonderful World", his most successful song. Louis was also seen in collaborations with other artist such as Ella Fitzgerald (known as the First Lady of the Swing), Miles Davis (Louis' best friend and "rival") and King Oliver (former teacher and leader of Louis' first quartet).
Louis return from the dead and makes a deal with Scatman John in the music video for Everybody Jam! He was a trumpeter, bandleader, singer, soloist, film star and comedian.
