The project is dedicated to Louis Armstrong, an icon of American jazz. The author takes Armstrong to the years of his youth and sends him into an imagined journey over the Russian province — a mythological, not a real one, to the accompaniment of What a Wonderful World. Here Russia is a part of Costarica, a fictional land invented by Lovigin as far back as in 2005, the land he is still populating with fairytale and historical characters.

It is another dream of Petr Lovigin continuing his fairytales about the fictional country of Costarica and its heroes: Wolf the Emerald Heart, GodKnowsWhat, Takeshi Kitano, Sathya Sai Baba, and others. This time he chooses young Louis Armstrong as his main character in My Louis is Not Coming Back to Me, the series of Lovigin, a tribute to What a Wonderful World, an immortal song. Louis, young and unburdened by fame, seems to descend from the heaven like Archangel Gabriel with his trumpet, and plays his best creation to all the residents of Costarica. At the same time, the author sends his character on a small voyage over his favorite places: crossing the field near the village with the St. John the Evangelist Church near Rostov, passing through the Konstantinovo fields near the Oka River where Yesenin was born, he will inevitably find himself near the Church of the Intercession on the Nerl, with the giraffes always strolling around it...
