#SatchmoFactoftheDay 9

Satchmo’s #musical influence was recognized by the musicians who came after him. Fellow musician Miles Davis once said, "You can't play anything on a horn that Louis hasn't played," according to a National Museum of American History biography of Armstrong.

Leonard Feather, the critic and author of The Encyclopedia of Jazz, wrote that Armstrong's style, "#melodically and #harmonicallysimple by the standards of later jazz trends, achieved in his early records an unprecedented warmth and #beauty. His singing, lacking most of the traditional vocal qualities accepted outside the jazz world, had a rhythmic intensity and guttural charm that induced literally thousands of other vocalists to imitate him," just as "countless trumpeters through the years reflected the impact of his style."
