2010 Louis Prima Jazz Fest Poster
A Portrait of Louis Prima by Anthony Benedetto (Tony Bennett) 2010 marked the centennial year of Louis Prima’s birth, a New Orleans-born legend whose contributions to the American music scene are measured by the decade. In the 1930’s, with his New Orleans Gang, he took his trumpet and vocal style to New York and Los Angeles where he helped define an era, forming a 22-piece orchestra that regularly topped the Big Band Era charts of the 40’s.
