Louis Armstrong: The Challenges of 1935
Episode date - January 22, 2010
Our story picks up in 1935, as Louis completes an extended working vacation in Europe. He returns to America only to find that his personal business is in a shambles, particularly as his management is concerned.
Louis attempts to pick up the pieces, and finds himself with a new manager, on a new record label. Musically, he hits the cruise control button, which annoys critics but results in a catalog of consistently brilliant music.
