“If anybody was Mr. Jazz it was Louis Armstrong. He was the epitome of Jazz and always will be. He is what I call an American standard, an American original.”

--Duke Ellington

 

As stated on the Louis Armstrong House Museum website, “Louis Armstrong-the world’s most famous Jazz musician-was an international celebrity who could have lived anywhere. Yet in 1943, he and his wife Lucille settled in a modest house in Corona Queens, where they lived for the remainder of their lives. No one has lived in the house since the Armstrongs, and the house and its furnishings remain very much as they were during Louis and Lucille’s lifetime.”

The Louis Armstrong House Museum gives tours of the house all decked out for Christmas. Christmas tours will continue through December 30, 2012. In addition to the special 40 minute guided tour and access to exhibits and garden, visitors will hear Mr. Armstrong’s voice reading “Twas the Night Before Christmas and A Visit from Saint Nicholas”. Christmas recordings such as “Zat you Santa Claus” and an impromptu duet with Nat King Cole can also be heard.

Christmas candy canes are included with the price of admission.
