A biography of Louis Armstrong's prolific years in the 1920s and early 1930s, this book examines the cultural forces that shaped his life and, ultimately, jazz itself. Thomas Brothers picks up where he left off with the "compelling" (Literary Review), "scholarly without being scholastic" (Financial Times), Louis Armstrong's New Orleans (ISBN 978 0 393 33001 4), blending personal accounts to tell the story of how Armstrong navigated the legacies of racial inequality to forge two new musical styles - one vocal and one instrumental - that permanently altered the course of popular music. Combining biography, cultural history and musical scholarship, Louis Armstrong, Master of Modernism illuminates the life and work of the man often considered to be the greatest American artist of the twentieth century.
