Très bien écrit, l'anglais se lit facilement (pour quelqu'un avec un niveau correct, mais pas bilingue non plus). Parfait pour se plonger dans l'ambiance de la NO

Satchmo: My Life in New Orleans 7 juillet 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The editors kept Armstrong's voice true to the legend and honest in its depictions of his sometimes harsh life in New Orleans. However, Artmstrong's sense of humor and goodness shine through his story and the reader really learns to like him as a person as well as a great musician. As a native New Orleanian, I really enjoyed his descriptions of the city during that time. I look forward to reading this book again!

Like pulling up an armchair and jawin' with Louis 4 novembre 2003
Par R. J. Marsella - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
What shines through this recollection of Louis Armstrong's youth in New Orleans is the essential positive outlook this man seems to have been born with despite the hardship of his early years. This "life-force' for lack of a better term is what drove his musicianship to such heights that he is the most revered American musician of the 20th century. While this is no scholalry biography it is written with the feel of an oral history and reading it is much like having Satch relate these tales over a few drinks. Not only does it shed much light on the real person that Louis Armstrong was but it also reflects an era in old New Orleans that is absolutely fascinating to read about in the words of someone who lived there. This is a hugely enjoyable book on numerous levels and for fans of Armstrong it is indispensible.

A glinpse into an old way and an old soul 29 décembre 2009
Par Steven H. Dymond - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I agree with the previous reviewers regarding style and simplicity.

What I loved most about this book is the glimpse into old New Orleans, an older America, and the richness of black music and its culture and roots.

One learns some older blues jargon, and, implicitly, the closely knit New Orleans musical life. The book also gives insight into another culture, musicians, pimps and prostitutes and the sporting life, as well as the unfailing positive spirit of Louis Armstrong.

This is more about the times of his youth than an in depth understanding of the development of his musicianship. It is, however, an entertaining and informative read, for lovers of the man, blues, jazz, and 'wild west' New Orleans culture around the early 1900's. Mr. Armstrong's happiness and energy pour forth in every page.

Red beans and rice! 5 novembre 2010
Par JMorganfield - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Love it! Awesome story about Satchmo's life in New Orleans, the bands he played in, his influences, where/how he learned and developed his sound and more! Recommend it for anyone who is interested in going back in time and "seeing, smelling, hearing, etc" how it really was back in the day.
The real deal 29 août 2013
Par Ken Kardash - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I usually prefer historical biography to someone's autobiography, assuming the author will naturally edit his memory into a nostalgic distortion of reality. I underestimated the spirit of Louis Armstrong.

This is the fountainhead, the source for so many memorable quotations and stories repeated elsewhere. And, with the exception of a short introduction, it's all vintage Satchmo. You can almost hear that gravelly voice speaking directly to you in some dressing room. It rings true from every page - one long, uncensored, free-associating ramble through the first 22 years of his life before he moved on to Chicago and fame. His humor, humanity and passion for music come through more clearly in his own words than in any subsequent analysis.

His candor is remarkable. Aside from his marijuana use, nothing seems to have been censored here. He matter-of-factly recounts growing up dirt poor, surrounded by hustlers whose habits he sometimes admired and even emulated. Though he doesn't make the link himself, his lifelong rocky relationships with women are put in perspective by how he literally grew up in brothels, and even had a short career as a pimp in his teen years before marrying a prostitute. Yet never is there a hint of regret or self-pity. His love for music and life was so great that it allowed him to take it all in stride. The joy and optimism noted by so many observers infectiously rubs off from every page.

Even if you weren't already a fan, you will be after reading this book.
