La vie en rose trumpet

An all-star virtuoso, he came to prominence in the s, influencing countless musicians with both his daring trumpet style and unique vocals. Armstrong's charismatic stage presence impressed not only the jazz world but all of popular music. Louis Armstrong was born on August 4,in New Orleans, Louisiana, in a neighborhood so poor that it was nicknamed "The Battlefield.

Armstrong had a difficult childhood: His father was a factory worker and abandoned the family soon after Louis's birth. His mother, who often turned to prostitution, frequently left him with his maternal grandmother.

Armstrong was obligated to leave school in the fifth grade to begin working. A local Jewish family, the Karnofskys, gave young Armstrong a job collecting junk and delivering coal. They also encouraged him to sing and often invited him into their home for meals. On New Year's Eve inArmstrong fired his stepfather's gun in the air during a New Year's Eve celebration and was arrested on the spot.

He was then sent to the Colored Waif's Home for Boys. There, he received musical instruction on the cornet and fell in love with music. Inthe home released him, and he immediately began dreaming of a life making music. While he still had to work odd jobs selling newspapers and hauling coal to the city's famed red-light district, Armstrong began earning a reputation as a fine blues player.

One of the greatest cornet players in town, Joe "King" Oliver, began acting as a mentor to the young Armstrong, showing him pointers on the horn and occasionally using him as a sub.

By the end of his teens, Armstrong had grown up fast. Inhe married Daisy Parker, a prostitute, commencing a stormy union marked by many arguments and acts of violence. During this time, Armstrong adopted a three-year-old boy named Clarence. The boy's mother, Armstrong's cousin, had died in childbirth. Clarence, who had become mentally disabled from a head injury he had suffered at an early age, was taken care of by Armstrong his entire life.

Meanwhile, Armstrong's reputation as a musician continued to grow: Inhe replaced Oliver in Kid Ory's band, then the most popular band in New Orleans.

He was soon able to stop working manual labor jobs and began concentrating full-time on his cornet, playing parties, dances, funeral marches and at local "honky-tonks"—a name for small bars that typically host musical acts.

Beginning inArmstrong spent his summers playing on riverboats with a band led by Fate Marable. It was on the riverboat that Armstrong honed his music reading skills and eventually had his first encounters with other jazz legends, including Bix Beiderbecke and Jack Teagarden.

Though Armstrong was content to remain in New Orleans, in the summer ofhe received a call from Oliver to come to Chicago and join his Creole Jazz Band on second cornet. Armstrong accepted, and he was soon taking Chicago by storm with both his remarkably fiery playing and the dazzling two-cornet breaks that he shared with Oliver. He made his first recordings with Oliver on April 5, ; that day, he earned his first recorded solo on "Chimes Blues.

Armstrong soon began dating the female pianist in the band, Lillian Hardin. After they married inHardin made it clear that she felt Oliver was holding Armstrong back. She pushed her husband to cut ties with his mentor and join Fletcher Henderson's Orchestra, the top African-American dance band in New York City at the time.

Armstrong joined Henderson in the fall of and immediately made his presence felt with a series of solos that introduced the concept of swing music to the band. Armstrong had a great influence on Henderson and his arranger, Don Redman, both of whom began integrating Armstrong's swinging vocabulary into their arrangements—transforming Henderson's band into what is generally regarded as the first jazz big band.

However, Armstrong's southern background didn't mesh well with the more urban, Northern mentality of Henderson's other musicians, who sometimes gave Armstrong a hard time over his wardrobe and the way he talked. Henderson also forbade Armstrong from singing, fearing that his rough way of vocalizing would be too coarse for the sophisticated audiences at the Roseland Ballroom.

Today, these are generally regarded as the most important and influential recordings in jazz history; on these records, Armstrong's virtuoso brilliance helped transform jazz from an ensemble music to a soloist's art. His stop-time solos on numbers like "Cornet Chop Suey" and "Potato Head Blues" changed jazz history, featuring daring rhythmic choices, swinging phrasing and incredible high notes.Published by Kevin Busse H0.

The title literally means "life in pink," or life seen through rose-colored glasses. It was an apt metaphor for the colorful life of its creator. Edith Piaf, a street waif in early 20th century Paris, became a performer of worldwide renown when she was offered a job singing in a cabaret, based solely on the raw power and pathos of her untrained voice. The slight singer was renamed "Piaf" or sparrow.

Piaf had performed at a bordello-cabaret named "La Vie en Rose" several years before she wrote the lyrics that would come to define her to a global audience. Life was hard and the songs of the cabaret singers both reflected the hardship and promised a glimmer of hope for a brighter future. But, once she did, it became an instant hit, defining both the singer and the era. Louis Armstrong made "La Vie en Rose" one of his signature songs.

Ina feature film about Piaf, "La Vie en Rose," recounted the life story of the "Little Sparrow," her colorful exploits and affaires d'amour, the trajectory of her enduring career and the indelible legacy of her talent. The song, recorded by Louis Armstrong, is heard in the animated film "Wall-E" when the two robotic characters first encounter each other in the ruins.

Though not a conventional beauty, the 4ft 10in diva was a volcano of drama, whose murky tales of murder, abandonment and prostitution were given an added frisson by her guttural vibrato. Piaf sang through the war as through the tragedies in her personal life, which included the death of her two-year-old daughter from meningitis in and that of her great love, the boxer Marcel Cerdan, who was killed in a plane crash in Performing for the occupying Germans as well as her fellow countrymen, Piaf was briefly branded a collaborator.

But rumours of Nazi-pleasing were firmly quashed in when resistance leaders revealed that Piaf had smuggled maps and compasses to French POWs during her prison camp tours. She also posed for photographs with inmates; the photographs were used to create fake identity documents and enabled many prisoners to escape. After the war, as France sucked up Marshall Plan money and morale-boosting jazz records from the US, Piaf went for a drink with her friend Marianne Michel.

Michel recorded the song first — a sweet, xylophone-frosted version — with Piaf laying down her own, definitive version two years later. Her version sold more than 1m copies and made her name across the Atlantic, where Americans were startled to behold such a tiny woman in a simple black frock, exuding none of the Hollywood glamour to which they were accustomed. InLouis Armstrong gave the song a sumptuous treatment with a sleepy trumpet solo that starts out on a bed of solo piano glissandos and blooms against a big band finale.

Fellow disco diva Donna Summer recorded a rather bland version in But it was Pascal of Bollywood who gave the best modern account of the song in Pascal, a French actor and singer born Pascal Heni known for reinterpreting Indian cinema songs, duetted with Bollywood star Shreya Ghoshal against a glorious, sari-pirouetting mix of Parisian pavement accordion, sitar, tabla and bansari Indian bamboo flute.
