July 4, 1900 is the day that Louis Armstrong always claims as his
birthday. Armstrong's nickname will be Satchmo. He will receive this
nickname in England in the early 1930's when the British hear his
original nickname, Satchelmouth, incorrectly. Armstrong will be recognized as the first genius of Jazz because the entire concept of swinging will be attributed to him.
