It's August 4, maybe you or somebody you know has a birthday. And so does jazz titan Louis Armstrong.
Renowned for his incredible trumpet playing, singular voice, and strong stage presence, Armstrong was also a heavy marijuana smoker, once describing it as "a thousand times better than whiskey."
So HAPPY BIRTHDAY to one and all, and to Louis Armstrong, a badass who made those of us living in Washington, Oregon, California, Colorado, Massachusetts, and Maine want to sit back and enjoy his music in the best way possible.
