In this richly detailed and prodigiously researched book, jazz scholar and musician Ricky Riccardi reveals for the first time the genius and remarkable achievements of the last 25 years of Louis Armstrong’s life, providing along the way a comprehensive study of one of the best-known and most accomplished jazz stars of our time. Much has been written about Armstrong, but the majority of it focuses on the early and middle stages of his career. During the last third of his career, Armstrong was often dismissed as a buffoonish if popular entertainer. Riccardi shows us instead the inventiveness and depth of his music during this time. These are the years of his highest-charting hits, including “Mack the Knife” and “Hello, Dolly"; the famed collaborations with Ella Fitzgerald and Duke Ellington; and his legendary recordings with the All Stars. An eminently readable and insightful book, What a Wonderful World completes and enlarges our understanding of one of America’s greatest and most beloved musical icons.

With wit, colour and clarity, What A Wonderful World quickly and painlessly brings us up to speed on how the world of the 21st century works. From economics to physics and biology to philosophy, Marcus Chown explains the complex forces that shape our universe. Why do we breathe? What is money? How does the brain work? Why did life invent sex? Does time really exist? How does capitalism work - or not, as the case may be? Where do mountains come from? How do computers work? How did humans get to dominate the Earth? Why is there something rather than nothing? In What a Wonderful World, Marcus Chown, bestselling author of Quantum Theory Cannot Hurt You and the Solar System app, uses his vast scientific knowledge and deep understanding of extremely complex processes to answer simple questions about the workings of our everyday lives. Lucid, witty and hugely entertaining, it explains the basics of our essential existence, stopping along the way to show us why the Atlantic is widening by a thumbs' length each year, how money permits trade to time travel why the crucial advantage humans had over Neanderthals was sewing and why we are all living in a giant hologram.

What a Wonderful World is a story in pictures about what we can see all around us. The intent is to encourage us to be aware of our surroundings even when they are as small as the ants. The little bit of information is to make us think about what we see, why it is there, what it means, and how we can learn from seeing. Reading history from a book is nowhere near as interesting as seeing it in action, gaining an understanding of why it happened and comprehending a different culture through their methods of correspondencepictographs.

Why is it that only flowers bloom? What if a duck became an egret? Why do parrots look alike but butterflies are all different? What if sea water turned sweet and rivers became salty? These wonderful questions which bubble in the curious minds of children, may not have ready or obvious answers and can at times try the patience of a teacher of parent. They spring from developing powers of observation and supple imagination, and an effort to provide inherent logic to the scheme of things that dominate the world of adults. As parents and teachers, we need to understand and match the answers to the questions which emerge from free minds and unadulterated observation. Then adults too, can share these wonderful constructs, which are in fact, the ïtruths of wonderland'. What a Wonderful World provides a generous helping of such truths- to nurture and delight the child in us all.

Louis Armstrong was not only a virtuoso musician, singer, composer and actor, but also a dedicated writer who typed hundreds of letters and reminiscences, carrying a typewriter with him on his constant travels around the globe. The man never stopped creating, and constantly communicated with friends and acquaintances. His unique verbal, musical and visual content and style permeated everything he touched. Included in this extensive career biography are the major events of his life, his artistic innovations and cultural achievements, a detailed survey of his recordings and live performances, and in-depth discussions of his screen performances--not only his Hollywood feature film appearances, but his performances in short films, European concert films, and dozens of television shows broadcast from Hollywood, New York and Europe.
