Did you know? Trumpet aficionado and charismatic jazz legend Louis Armstrong acquired his various unusual childhood nicknames as a result of his big, wide smile that became known and adored the world over. “Dippermouth”, “Gatemouth” and “Satchelmouth”, later shortened accidentally to “Satchmo”, were all names that Louis answered to while growing up in New Orleans. Actually, Louie, as the French say it, was a nickname as well. He himself pronounced his first name the American way - Louis. Sadly, Louis passed away in 1971 in the Queens, New York City home that he and his wife Lucille owned for nearly thirty years. His home is now a museum honoring the great entertainer.
