Chapter 5

You've heard about Louie, Louie, but how about Louie, Louie, Louie?

Louis Armstrong: Some say that he invented what we now call Jazz. He said the music's great but my job is to entertain the people, and nobody did it better.

Louis Jordan: Some (Chuck Berry, for one) say that he invented what we now call Rock and Roll. He said that the music's great but my job is to entertain the people, and nobody did it better.

Louis Prima: What was left to invent? Las Vegas. He played a jazz-rock-and-roll-comedy concoction in Vegas lounges that was never equalled before or since; his job was to entertain the people, and nobody did it better.
