From Rags To Riches: The Story Of Louis Armstrong
Returning to Chicago in 1935, Louis hooked up with club owner Joe Glaser who promised to help turn his career around. He kept his word! Over the next decade, Satchmo's career as a movie star grew and grew, as did his music career. He recorded hits for Decca Records including 'La Vie En Rose' and 'A Kiss To Build A Dream On'. He also formed jazz band - 'The All Stars' whose many members went on to be music legends.
