Louis Armstrong (4 August 1901-6 July 1971), nicknamed Satchmo (short for "Satchel Mouth"), was an American jazz musician, who was famous for playing the cornet, trumpet and later as a vocalist.

Louis Armstrong often played at the Cotton Club in Harlem, New York City in the 1920s, where Benny Russell's father, Fox Russell, also performed. (DS9 novel: Far Beyond the Stars)

In 1928, Armstrong recorded a version of "West End Blues", which was a favorite tune of William T. Riker in the 24th century. Riker, a fan of Armstrong and all of his works and upon taking command of the USS Titan in 2379, named a shuttlecraft, the Armstrong, after him. (TTN novel: Taking Wing)
