Louis Daniel Armstrong (August 4, 1901 – July 6, 1971), [nicknamed] Satchmo, Satch, and Pops, was an American trumpeter, composer, vocalist and occasional actor [who] was one of the [most] influential figures in jazz. His [career] spanned five [decades], from the 1920s to the 1960s, and different eras in the [history] of jazz. In 2017, he was inducted into the Rhythm & Blues Hall of [Fame]. He [was] born and raised in New Orleans. Coming to prominence in the 1920s as an "inventive" trumpet and cornet [player], he has a foundational [influence] in jazz, shifting the [focus] of the music from collective improvisation to [solo] performance. With his instantly [recognizable] rich, gravelly [voice], he was also an [influential] singer. He is [renowned] for his charismatic [stage] presence and voice almost as much as for his trumpet playing. Armstrong's influence extends well beyond jazz, and by the [end] of his career in the 1960s, he was widely [regarded] as a profound influence on [popular] music in general..
