Finishing Louis Armstrong Day…

…Here at The Daily Music Break.

Terry Teachout, the drama critic for The Wall Street Journal, published a fabulous biography in late 2010 entitled Pops: A Life of Louis Armstrong. Here, Teachout is interviewed on C-SPAN by Brian Lamb, perhaps the best interviewer of our generation.

Note that Lamb starts out asking Teachout about his background. Once he builds that bridge, he moves on to Armstrong. One note: The embed seems to be acting a bit funny. After a few seconds it goes back to the beginning, but after that seems to play normally.
