  1. I watched the “American Masters” episode and appreciated Wynton Marsalis’ comments on the complexity Louis Armstrong’s music. He cited a specific tune, however, I did not catch the name. I know little about music but aam trying to learn more. I would like to go back and listen in leasure. Can anyone help me out with the name of that tune? Thanks.

  2. I have a new respect for Louis Armstrong after viewing this program. Wynton’s comments, along with those from the other artists, were very insightful.
