Remember the days of Teach-ins? Well, now we have a Teachout who's on Top o' the Pops. After reading your five-parter and the Man's full week of book-promotion in his on-line column (and everywhere else; he sure knows how to do it!), I'm packin' my Xmas Satchel full of copies and otherwise shuttin' my Mouth.

This five-part series has been one of my faves, Marc. I certainly can't call myself any kind of expert on Armstrong, but he always gives me that soft, warm glow in the center of my body when I listen to him or watch him.

Terry's book just arrived in my mailbox, and Terry himself will be on The Jazz Session early in 2010. Thanks for the inspiration. (Both of you!)

I think the Photo of Louis sat in his dressing room looking at his trumpet, really sums up his whole life, he is looking at it as if to say " what a strange life we have spent together" and that sort of moment could not be posed, it is a photographical poem of the true man.
