DID # Louis Armstrong – West End Blues

I caught on a TV documentary a story, of which I remember: a professor of music once confessed a cheerful ignorance of jazz to a colleague, who promptly frogmarched the sinner to an office where he could be introduced to this record. He listened in frozen silence to whole thing, then said, ‘play it again’.  After the second hearing, he remarked, ‘That is the most
perfect piece of music I have ever heard’.
