Music Monday: What a Wonderful World

Posted by on Mon, August 4th, 2014 at 10:00 am

After a brief hiatus, Music Monday returns!

Today we pay homage to one of the best jazz musicians to ever pick up a trumpet! Of course, we’re talking about Louis Armstrong – who would’ve been 113 years old today. So Happy Birthday Louis! With a voice that could not be mistaken for another, Louis Armstrong produced some classic pieces of music.

Enjoy this timeless song – “What a Wonderful World”
