Happy Birthday Louis Armstrong

I was listening to WBGO this morning when they announced that today is the birthday of jazz trumpeter Louis Armstrong born in 1901.  One of these days I am going to have to visit the Louis Armstrong House in nearby Corona where he lived from 1943 until his death in 1971.

I have always enjoyed What a Wonderful World that I first heard in the movie Good Morning Vietnam in 1988.  I believe that it was recorded in the 1960s but became a hit after it was shown in the film.
