There’s a sound that takes me
Other places, it is a sound I know
When that trumpet plays and
The melody sways, it’s the only Satchmo

It transports to other destinations
That I wouldn’t have gone before
The music?  Well, it’s timeless
That should be underscored

His horn it conjures pictures
Of Amsterdam, New Orleans & Paris
It’s as constant as the Northern
Star the one known as Polaris

The man he blazed a thousand trails
And opened many a mind
This ambassador of music
Simply cannot be maligned

So go now and discover
What Louis Armstrong has
The magic of the music
His life, his art, the Jazz
