Stubass - If I'm not mistaken, Louie Bluie Armstrong is the father of Ralph Armstrong, a popular Detroit Bassist. Perhaps, Jim G, or someone familiar with the family can let us know more.

Yes, Stubass, I was just reading about Louie Bluie on the Allmusic.com. Some of you may remember his son, Ralph Armstrong in the SITSOM Film.

Hahahah! I don't know why I'm doing up so late. I was watching a movie. My friend just left about an hour ago, and I had to catch up with some things before I go to bed. All I need now is to decide what cd I'm going to put on to put me to sleep; jazz, gospel, soul, or classical. So, just thinking about this has started me to yawning. :o) Good night!
