What a Wonderful World. Produced by Bob Thiele. Album What a Wonderful World. What a Wonderful World Lyrics. I see trees of green, red roses too I see them bloom, for me and you And I think to myself What a wonderful world. I see skies of blue and clouds of white The bright blessed days, the dark sacred nights And I think to myself What a wonderful world

Album: What A Wonderful World (1968). Charted: 1 32. Get the Sheet Music License This Song. Eduardo from Tucson, AzLouis Armstrong grew up in poverty in a rough neighborhood in New Orleans. His father left his family when he was an infant and his mother abandoned him soon afterward. He also lived in a time when being black meant you were a second class citizen. Yet, all this makes the song more meaningful. Rodris from Gdl, MexicoWhen I hear this song I imagine that the singer is being in a higher dimension and he is watching our world. Everything is important and all the details wich normally we see, tells something profound and trascendental.

What a Wonderful World Louis Armstrong. Satchmo's final album, from 1968, finds him performing pop and showtunes with his easygoing, lifelong charm. Following the eternally life-affirming title track, Armstrong summons up echoes of the musical fire that fuelled his earliest small-group recordings in "Cabaret" and "Hellzapoppin’"; shows off the subtleties of his velvet rumble of a voice in "The Home Fire"; and responds to the turbulent '60s with the earnest "Hello Brother.

Album What A Wonderful World (1968). Louis Daniel Armstrong (August 4, 1901 †July 6, 1971), nicknamed Satchmo, Satch, and Pops, was an American trumpeter, composer, singer and occasional actor who was one of the most influential figures in jazz. His career spanned five decades, from the 1920s to the 1960s, and different eras in the history of jazz. In 2017, he was inducted into the Rhythm & Blues Hall of Fame.

Helmed by legendary producer Bob Thiele, this 1968 recording ushered Louis Armstrong into his later days as a pop vocalist. Here, the trumpet that drove Armstrong's early Hot Fives and Sevens is more subdued as his familiar gravelly voice takes center stage.
