Coincidentally I'm reading a book set in 1919 New Orleans featuring a cast of characters including a 'chubby faced young horn-player on second cornet, who had not yet changed the pronunciation of his name to the French form Louey, and was still known...as Lil' Lewis Armstrong'.
It's called 'the Axe-mans Jazz' by Ray Celestin and I'm only a couple of chapters in, but so far so good.
