Words of Wisdom from Louis Armstrong...

I found this poignant clip of the great Louie Armstrong towards the end of his life introducing -- and then singing -- one of the most beautiful songs ever. It's interesting to get his wisdom on the lyrics of What a Wonderful World, and what they meant to him. Few works of art have better communicated the importance of green leaves and blue skies to humankind. Louis Armstrong was as pure and joyful and authentic as the come. And he sure knew what he was talking about. Enjoy.
