the last book I ever read (Satchmo: My Life in New Orleans by Louis Armstrong, excerpt two)

from Satchmo: My Life in New Orleans by Louis Armstrong:

Old Buddy Bolden blew so hard that I used to wonder if I would ever have enough lung power to fill one of those cornets. All in all Buddy Bolden was a great musician, but I think he blew too hard. I will even go so far as to say that he did not blow correctly. In any case he finally went crazy. You can figure that out for yourself.
