一本专门登载录音工业的音乐杂志:告示牌杂志 (Billboard) 认为路易斯.阿姆斯壮是「爵士音乐史上最重要的人物」。而专业爵士杂志Down Beat也赞同这个说法。为什么阿姆斯壮在美国爵士音乐史上如此的重要呢?

Louis Armstrong, was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, on August 4, 1901 (according to the most recent research), in the poorest section of town. He overcame poverty to become one of the most important people in the history of music.

Louis Armstrong was called "the single most important figure in the history of jazz" by Billboard magazine, a publication that tracks the recording industry. The jazz magazine Down Beat agreed. Why is Armstrong so important in the history of this American musical art form called jazz?
