Louis Armstrong (1901-1971) was an American Jazz trumpeter and singer, from New Orleans, Louisiana. With his strong stage presence and recognizable voice, Armstrong crossed over from a singer/songwriter to a celebrity personality, influencing popular music as well the jazz community.

The Muppets have covered not only songs written by Armstrong, including "Cheese Cake", but also songs that were hits for him, including "Hello, Dolly!", "When You're Smiling" and "Mack the Knife".
