This was an excellent series of programmes for anyone looking for great music. You don't have to be a 'jazz fan' to appreciate much of his output. One of his most memorable achievements was recorded in 1938 It contains some amazing trumpet playing and one of the first recorded scat vocals. Enjoy (ignoring the oddly uninspiring animation - this seems to be the best audio version on YouTube):

Louis Armstrong - West End Blues (iTunes)
