Jazz Appreciation Month at Louis Armstrong House Museum

Come visit the Louis Armstrong Museum this April as it celebrates Jazz Appreciation Month. Eighty-five years ago, Louis Armstrong recorded one of his all-time masterpieces, "West End Blues," one of the most important records in jazz history. For Jazz Appreciation Month, the museum's historic house tours will feature an ultra rare recording of Louis Armstrong performing "West End Blues" live at Freedomland in 1961. This performance was recently donated to its archives by the son of Freedomland sound engineer Peter Denis. Previously unissued and not in any discographies, it will be featured only during Jazz Appreciation Month. This recording ties into the museum's current exhibit, Louis Armstrong at Freedomland that closes April 30, 2012.
