Louis Armstrong and His Typewriter

Fascinating post over at the Blood and Gutstein blog: Daniel Gutstein is doing an analysis of Louis Armstrong's unique punctuation  in his letters, found in Louis Armstrong in His Own Words: Selected Writings (Oxford UP, 2001). To me, at least, Gutstein's analysis clearly shows that Armstrong is a poet with a unique take on the language. Check it out.

  1. I bet you were excited to read Gutstein's post. What could be better than a great jazz musician who's writing style could be considered experimental?
