Summer heat have you singing the blues? Let the rhythm of jazz bebop you into a state of jubilation. This Saturday, New Yorkers will have the chance to celebrate this wonderful world with the timeless music of an icon. Hop the train to Flushing Meadows for a celebration of New Orleans-style jazz and the life of Louis Armstrong. The festival will showcase notable musicians, with funk/jazz trio Soulive and trumpeters Dr. John and Kermit Ruffins headlining. There will be discussions on Armstrong's roots, face painting and cumbia for the kids, and an abundance of down-home cuisine. Main-stage admission is free, so you're officially out of excuses. Not that you were looking for any.
