In , Armstrong scored one last popular hit in the United Kingdom with " What a Wonderful World ", which topped the British charts for a month. Armstrong enjoyed many types of music, from blues to the arrangements of Guy Lombardo , to Latin American folksongs, to classical symphonies and opera. He incorporated influences from all these sources into his performances, sometimes to the bewilderment of fans who wanted him to stay in convenient narrow categories.
Armstrong was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as an early influence. Some of his solos from the s, such as the hard rocking version of " St. Louis Blues " from the WC Handy album, show that the influence went in both directions. Armstrong appeared in more than a dozen Hollywood films, usually playing a bandleader or musician. He appears throughout the film, also sings the title song as well as performs a duet with Crosby, " Now You Has Jazz ".

Against his doctor's advice, Armstrong played a two-week engagement in March at the Waldorf-Astoria 's Empire Room. At the end of it, he was hospitalized for a heart attack.

His irrepressible personality both as a performer and as a public figure was so strong that to some it sometimes overshadowed his contributions as a musician and singer.
As a virtuoso trumpet player, Armstrong had a unique tone and an extraordinary talent for melodic improvisation. Through his playing, the trumpet emerged as a solo instrument in jazz and is used widely today. Additionally, jazz itself was transformed from a collectively improvised folk music to a soloist's serious art form largely through his influence.
He was a masterful accompanist and ensemble player in addition to his extraordinary skills as a soloist. With his innovations, he raised the bar musically for all who came after him. Though Armstrong is widely recognized as a pioneer of scat singing , Ethel Waters precedes his scatting on record in the s according to Gary Giddins and others. Holiday said that she always wanted Bessie Smith 's 'big' sound and Armstrong's feeling in her singing.
Even special musicians like Duke Ellington have praised Armstrong through strong testimonials. He was and will continue to be the embodiment of jazz.

According to literary critic Harold Bloom, "The two great American contributions to the world's art, in the end, are Walt Whitman and, after him, Armstrong and jazz If I had to choose between the two, ultimately, I wouldn't. I would say that the genius of this nation at its best is indeed Walt Whitman and Louis Armstrong.

I was only seven years old, but I could easily see the ungodly treatment that the white folks were handing the poor Jewish family whom I worked for. It dawned on me, how drastically.
