    My experience at Mardi Gras 2015 in New Orleans documents the sights and people expressed through Billie Holliday and Louis Armstrong's 1947 recording of "Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans". Even though New Orleans is a cultural hub that is ever changing and growing the nature and celebrations of the city have stayed a constant for many generations. New Orleans then and now would probably not be so different.

                A group of young Birmingham based musicians help to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the First World War by re-interpreting the Early Jazz music of that era in a series of performances around Birmingham on November 13th 2014. It’s all part of a project led by pianist Trevor Watkis. The performances form part of Expressions of War – a nationwide series developed by London-based arts organisation Small Green Shoots and funded by Arts Council England. The initiative aims to “use art and creativity to explore the Great War’s 100th anniversary and to engage young hard-to-reach audiences around the time of "Remembrance Day” 2014. This project, called The Jazz Sounds Of WW1, saw seven participants – Samantha Wright, clarinet; Joshua Tagg, trombone; Xhosa Cole, tenor saxophone; Steven Mayes, tuba; Aram Bahmaie, bass; Romarna Campbell, drums; Antonio Socci, trumpet; Arevie Nahvi, vocals; all selected from music groups and projects around Birmingham – perform music synonymous with the period at four locations around the city centre. The Jazz Sounds Of WW1 is the result of a series of intense research and compositional workshops which have seen the participants mentored by Trevor alongside other leading UK jazz musicians alto saxophonist and MC Soweto Kinch, trumpeter Byron Wallen and tenor saxophonist Jean Toussaint. #jazzsoundsww1 For more info - contact@bluesoundscape.com

                    One of the world's most renowned jazz musicians and entertainers; Louis Armstrong lived in this modest Queens home from 1943 until his death in 1971. In 1983, his widow Lucille willed the building and its contents to New York City for the creation of a museum and study center devoted to Armstrong's career and the history of jazz. The house is a gem frozen in time, as if the Armstongs have just stepped out. The museum offers daily guided tours to visitors from around the world and features a variety of programs, including concerts, lectures, and seminars. The Louis Armstrong House was named a National Historic Landmark in 1976 and a New York City Landmark in 1988. Plan your visit to the Louis Armstrong House Museum 34-56 107th Street, Corona (Queens), NY - louisarmstronghouse.org The Conservancy would like to thank the staff at the Louis Armstrong House Museum and our tour guides David Reese, Curator and Jennifer Walden Weprin, Director of Marketing. The Museum is administered by Queens College, City University of New York. Photos courtesy of the Jack Bradley Collection. Photos and audio courtesy of the Louis Armstrong House Museum.
