Date correction: Satchmo Fest: Celebration of Louis Armstrong's writings

  • Readings from Louis Armstrong's selected writings 2372 St. Claude Ave New Orleans, LA 70117 USA (map)

Happy my suggestion for this event took hold.  Come by and see notable New Orleans voices reading selections from the writings of the jazz master, Louis Armstrong for the beginning of  Satchmo Summerfest at Cafe Istanbul, New Orleans.  Armstrong was an all-round artistic voice; a prolific writer to boot and, as always his distinctive artistic bent and style pervade this medium as well as his colossal music contribution. Of course, he was also a central shaping figure of the 20th century art so his stories are ground central for an important viewpoint of the world in his time.
