U.S. Census Bureau Daily Feature For August 4
WASHINGTON, Aug. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:
SATURDAY, AUGUST 4: LOUIS ARMSTRONG
Profile America — Saturday, August 4th. One of the most revered figures in the history of jazz, Louis Armstrong — nicknamed "Satchmo" — was born in New Orleans on this date in 1901. His worldwide fame was such that one of his nicknames was "Ambassador Satch." The exact date of Armstrong's birth was a subject of confusion for years, since he often said he was born July 4, 1900. But his impact on jazz and popular music was never in dispute. His innovative playing helped define not only the jazz cornet and trumpet, but jazz itself. Jazz continues to have a relatively small, but fiercely loyal group of fans. About 8 percent of adults attend a live jazz performance each year.
