doing his truly outstanding "Satchmo" imitation.
Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong with trumpet and handkerchief. He called
himself "Satchelmouth", but that was shortened to "Satchmo" by a
London music magazine editor in 1932. "Satchmo" stuck.
In the 1956 film "High Society", Louis can be heard referring to
himself as "Satchelmouth", which is how I learned about it.
