“The King of Queens--Louis Armstrong's Wonderful World"
Ricky Riccardi, Director
of Research Collections at the Louis Armstrong House Museum

Louis Armstrong (1901-1971) was one of the most famous and influential 
musicians of all time, changing the course of music with his innovations 
as a trumpeter and vocalist. Emblematic of the Jazz Age and the Harlem 
Renaissance of the 1920s, Armstrong’s unique sound was wildly popular 
and widely sought-after. Yet while the entertainer toured all over the 
world throughout the course of his illustrious career, he called nearby 
Corona, Queens, home for the last 28 years of his life.

Join Ricky Riccardi, Director of Research Collections at the Louis 
Armstrong House Museum and author of two Armstrong biographies, as he 
discusses Armstrong’s historic career, shows rare footage of the 
trumpeter in action. and describes the mission of the museum today as 
well as its future plans to celebrate the legacy of one of Queens’—and 
Long Island’s--greatest citizens.
