One of the biggest reasons surely for the unanimous sort of respect for the abilities of Louis Armstrong is found in his ability to create energy. For me, this is one of the most incredible things about listening to someone like him. When Louis comes in, you can feel him pick up every member of the band, hell, probably every member of the room and carry them to a place that only he could take them. It’s a different piece when Louis comes in. He gave the music an energy that was a part of him, every time, an extension of him in the way that he played every note. The very thing that he was doing itself was energized by his action.
