The first autobiography of a jazz musician, Louis Armstrong's Swing That Music is a milestone in jazz literature. Armstrong wrote most of the biographical material. Also covers his days on Chicago's South Side with "King" Oliver, his courtship and marriage to Lil Hardin, his 1929 move to New York, the formation of his own band, his European tours, and his international success. One of the most earnest justifications ever written for the new style of music then called "swing" but more broadly referred to as "Jazz."

(Key Words: Swing Music, Jazz, Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey. Joe Venuti. Louis Armstrong, Bud Freeman, Red Norvo, Claude Hopkins, Carl Kress, Stanley Dennis, Ray Bauduc, Rudy Vallee).
