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 Рhis 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.
