Louis Armstrong , también conocido como Satchmo o Pops, fue un trompetista y cantante estadounidense de jazz.

Se trata de una de las figuras más carismáticas e innovadoras de la historia del jazz y, probablemente, su músico más popular. Gracias a sus habilidades musicales y a su brillante personalidad, transformó el jazz desde su condición inicial de música de baile, en una forma de arte popular. Aunque en el arranque de su carrera cimentó su fama sobre todo como cornetista y trompetista, más adelante sería su condición de vocalista la que le consagraría como una figura internacionalmente reconocida y de enorme influencia para el canto jazzístico.

Los logros de Satchmo escapan a lo meramente artístico o personal, pues se convirtieron en símbolo de la creatividad del americano.

„Seems to me it ain't the world that's so bad but what we're doing to it, and all I'm saying is: see what a wonderful world it would be if only we'd give it a chance. Love, baby - love. That's the secret.“

—  Louis Armstrong
Context: Seems to me, it aint the world that's so bad but what we're doin' to it. And all I'm saying is, see, what a wonderful world it would be if only we'd give it a chance. Love baby, love. That's the secret, yeah. If lots more of us loved each other, we'd solve lots more problems. And then this world would be a gasser. That's wha' ol' Pops keeps saying. Context: Some of you young folks been saying to me, "Hey Pops, what you mean 'What a wonderful world'? How about all them wars all over the place? You call them wonderful? And how about hunger and pollution? That aint so wonderful either." Well how about listening to old Pops for a minute. Seems to me, it aint the world that's so bad but what we're doin' to it. And all I'm saying is, see, what a wonderful world it would be if only we'd give it a chance. Love baby, love. That's the secret, yeah. If lots more of us loved each other, we'd solve lots more problems. And then this world would be a gasser. That's wha' ol' Pops keeps saying. Spoken intro to "What a Wonderful World" (1970 version)

„Making money ain't nothing exciting to me.... You might be able to buy a little better booze than some wino on the corner. But you get sick just like the next cat, and when you die you're just as graveyard dead as he is.“
