Louis Daniel Armstrong (August 4, 1901 — July 6, 1971), nicknamed Satchmo, Satch, and Pops, was an American trumpeter, composer, singer and occasional actor who was one of the most influential figures in jazz. His career spanned five decades, from the 1920s to the 1960s, and different eras in the history of jazz. In 2017, he was inducted into the Rhythm & Blues Hall of Fame. With his instantly recognizable gravelly voice, Armstrong was also an influential singer, demonstrating great dexterity as an improviser, bending the lyrics and melody of a song for expressive purposes. He was also very skilled at scat singing. Armstrong is renowned for his charismatic stage presence and voice almost as much as for his trumpet playing. Armstrong"s influence extends well beyond jazz, and by the end of his career in the 1960s, he was widely regarded as a profound influence on popular music in general. Armstrong was one of the first truly popular African-American entertainers to "cross over", that is, whose skin color became secondary to his music in an America that was extremely racially divided at the time. He rarely publicly politicized his race, often to the dismay of fellow African Americans, but took a well-publicized stand for desegregation in the Little Rock crisis. His artistry and personality allowed him access to the upper echelons of American society, then highly restricted for black men.

A man works hard then comes on home,Expects to find stew with that fine ham bone.He opens the door, then start to lookin',Says, Woman, what's this stuff you're cookin'?All that meat and no potatoesJust ain't right, like green tomatoes.Here I'm waiting, palpitatin',For all that meat and no potatoes.All that meat and no potatoesAll that food to the alligators, yes.Hold me steady. I am readyFor all that meat and no potatoes.I don't think that peas are bad.With meat most anything goes.I look into the pot. I'm fit to fight'Cause, woman, you know that mess ain't right.All that meat and no potatoesJust ain't right, like green tomatoes.Woman, I'm steamin'. I'm really screamin'All that meat and no potatoes.Where is my fry and ham bone? Where is it?
