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

HASH(0x929f315c) étoiles sur 5 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!

HASH(0x929bb2c4) étoiles sur 5 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.

HASH(0x929bb15c) étoiles sur 5 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.

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.
HASH(0x92bb9d98) étoiles sur 5 amazing read 21 décembre 2015
Par MGN - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
An amazing read. This is Louis Armstrong's (aka Satchmo) memoirs about his childhood in New Orleans 1900 to 1920 until he went to Chicago. The story is an incredible view into the old New Orleans music scene and how one gifted child rose through it. First, Satchmo's description of New Orleans is a wild delight. He writes of street musicians, honky tonks, juke joints, bordellos and the characters that populated them. Those characters are a colorful bunch. They are the hustlers, madams, pimps, working girls of the New Orleans underworld and Satchmo makes them come alive. This may seem like an unwholesome crowd, but a young Jazz musician had only so many places to play his music and these establishments were the ones that hired and paid young Louis and his band to play. They come across as flawed, but human and certainly a very colorful bunch.
The story includes Satchmo's earliest musical efforts, his arrest for some gun play and time in a juvenile home which had an orchestra and where the orchestra director noticed the promising new inmate and gave him his break. The juvenile home orchestra in those days would often be allowed out to play funerals, church events and even family parties for wealthy southern white families and so Satchmo began to get noticed.
The description of life in New Orleans for a very poor young black musician is also an interesting insight. Louis describes how he would gather throw away food from the restaurant quarter to bring home for meals and how he drove a coal cart with a horse to make a living and then played long nights in the bordellos and honky tonks late into the night. There the pimps and working girls would toss the young trumpet player some money in exchange for his ability to keep them in good cheer or to keep the customers drinking and paying.
The story end with Satchmo's call up and move to Chicago to play with King Oliver's band and begin his rise to Jazz legend. Still, its the story of his roots in New Orleans which makes for an incredibly interesting and lively read and a great time piece int a different world and its characters, long gone, but not to be forgotten. At 200 pages, the book is a quick and easy read. Its such an entertaing story, I'm surprised it hasn't been made into a movie.
In any case, even 5 stars don't do it justice. If there was a sixth star for extra awesomeness, I would give it to this book.
