Considered by some to be the greatest musical entertainer of the 20th century, Louis was certainly one of the greatest ever trumpeters with an unsurpassed clarity of tone and a style all his own. Louis was introduced to the trumpet at the Waif's Home in New Orleans, a juvenile delinquent institute he was sent to after being arrested for firing a pistol in the air while celebrating new year. His unique gravelly voice is as instantly recognisable as his trumpet playing, and he's often credited with inventing scat singing style.
