I think Miles Davis said it best when he said

"You know you can't play anything on the horn that Louis hasn't 
played- I mean even modern."

Jazz existed before Louis but he was responsible for 
establishing the modern jazz language of today and yesterday. If 
that doesn't make him the greatest then I don't know what does.
