When he was young, Louis Armstrong was taking what was called Creole jazz, which was also called dance music, and combining it with trumpeter (小号手) Buddy Bolden, to create what would eventually become today's jazz.
Armstrong accomplished this with almost no formal training. What little training he did have began when he was placed in the New Orleans Colored Waif's Home at the age of 12, after a run-in with the police. The punishment tuned out to be a mixed blessing, for he also had the opportunity to play in a real band.
While at the Waif’s Home, Armstrong also got the chance to hear some of the city’s finest musicians. Cornetist Freddie Keppard performed in a nearby club. So did trumpeter and bandleader King Joe Oliver, who took the boy under his wing and taught him how to read music and work on his playing technique.
When Oliver left for Chicago, Armstrong chose to stay in New Orleans and work with some of the other top musicians of the day. Some years later in Chicago, King Oliver offered him a place in his band in 1922. It became Armstrong’s biggest challenge yet --- the band had no parts written for trumpet, so he was forced to listen to King Oliver and improvise ( 即兴创作 ).
Soon, Armstrong’s undeniable talent was getting notice.
Lil Hardin, the band’s piano player and the future Mrs. Armstrong, explains that Oliver kept Armstrong in the second trumpet-chair so that Oliver would still be “King”. Hardin convinced him to leave the band.
Armstrong recorded his first composition, Cornet Chop Suey, one of the most copied jazz solos of all time. This monumental 1928 recording mixes artistry, endurance and showmanship that has rarely, if ever, been matched in jazz.
24、What does the underlined word “run-in” mean in the second paragraph?
A、campaign             B、tension             C、exploration          D、conflict
25、 Who played a fundamental part in Armstrong’s achievements in music?
A、Buddy Bolden.                          B、Lil Hardin. 
C、King Joe Oliver                         D、Cornetist Freddie Keppard.
26、 Why did Louis Armstrong leave King Oliver’ s band?
A、Because he wanted to get married in New York.
B、Because his talent could not develop completely.
C、Because he got a better opportunity in New York.
D、Because the man forced him to leave the band.
27、What's the main idea of the passage?
A、It asks readers to know more about modern jazz.
B、It introduces one of the greatest jazz musicians.
C、It introduces the development of jazz.
D、It describes the importance of talent in playing jazz.
