1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

No one ever dreamed the child who peeked under the swinging doors of local jazz clubs would grow up to become the great Satchmo. But young Louis Armstrong did, and his dream of becoming a great trumpet player, just like his idol Bunk Johnson, grows every glance. Then, the young Louis sees a horn in a pawn shop window. The price is $5. Though desperately poor, young Satchmo's spirit cannot be defeated. He is determined to earn money he needs by working as many odd jobs as he can. Even though it seems he'll never earn enough, he continues to practice by playing an imaginery trumpet. Louis Armstrong's dream and determination are sure to inspire listeners of all ages. Narrator Peter Francis James' lyrical voice is the perfect match for this vibrant, swinging tribute to one of the greatest musicians of the 20th century
