  1. Hi I’m a 64 year old woman. I am a Louisiana native. I’ve always loved Louis Armstrong‘s music and singing. After watching this second recent documentary on him, I feel I understand him so much better now. Unfortunately, Time had to pass and my knowledge had to grow. I now know he was an architect of all the music in this life, I love.

    Please tell me that last song. It was the song that played doing the last part of the credits. Hearing that song I could hear my culture. I heard Jazz, I heard blues, I even heard of Cajun fiddle playing oh so softly. I would love to buy it!

When asking about what song is playing during a scene, please specify around what minute.
