That Time In 1964 Louis Armstrong Advertised A Baby Doll On TV

Coming to prominence in the 1920s as an “inventive” cornet and trumpet player, Louis Armstrong was a foundational influence in jazz, shifting the music’s focus from collective improvisation to solo performance. With his instantly recognizable deep and distinctive gravelly voice, resembling the sound of a trumpet, Armstrong was also an influential singer, demonstrating great dexterity as an improviser, bending the lyrics and melody of a song for expressive purposes. He was also greatly skilled at scat singing, vocalizing using sounds and syllables instead of actual lyrics.

And in 1964, he pitched a baby doll on television, which makes him even cooler to me.
