About this painting:
I'm gaining an appreciation for Jazz music... it is one of the few things that is truly American! There is one name that is synonymous with Jazz... "Satchmo!"
"I think that anybody from the 20th century, up to now, has to be aware that if it wasn't for Louis Armstrong, we'd all be wearing powdered wigs. I think that Louis Armstrong loosened the world, helped people to be able to say "Yeah," and to walk with a little dip in their hip. Before Louis Armstrong, the world was definitely square, just like Christopher Columbus thought." -- South African trumpet legend Hugh Masekela
