#SatchmoFactoftheDay 19

Since #LouisArmstrong’s death, Armstrong's stature has only continued to grow. In the 1980s and '90s, younger African-American jazz #musicians like Wynton Marsalis, Jon Faddis and Nicholas Payton began speaking about Armstrong's importance, both as a musician and a human being. A series of new #biographies on Armstrong made his role as a civil rights pioneer abundantly clear and, subsequently, argued for an embrace of his entire career's output, not just the #revolutionary recordings from the 1920s. Armstrong's home in Corona, #Queens was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1977; today, the house is home to the Louis Armstrong House Museum, which annually receives thousands of visitors from all over the world. Arguably the most important figure in 20th century music, Armstrong's #innovations as a trumpeter and vocalist are widely recognized today, and will continue to be for decades to come.
