Louis

On his many years on the road Louis Armstrong passed the while by making collages on the fronts and backs of his collection of seven-inch reel boxes. He used whatever was at hand. Pics of friends, news clippings, packaging and flyers.  The collages had no correlation with what was on the tapes – his favourite music, backstage jokes or recordings of everyday conversations with friends. Over 1000 collages reside in the Louis Armstrong Archives in Queens College New York.
