The Players Ella and Louie Tribute is a group of New Orleans resident musicians that collaborate on music recorded by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong. The band includes veteran performers Eileina Dennis (vocals), Leon "Kid Chocolate" Brown (trumpet), Mitchell Player (bass), Gerald French (drums), Todd Duke (guitar) and Leslie Martin (piano).

About the exhibition "Giants of Jazz"
September's event is presented in conjunction with THNOC's exhibition "Giants of Jazz: Art Posters and Lithographs by Waldemar Świerzy from the Daguillard Collection," which will be on view during the concert. A leader in the 20th-century tradition of Polish poster art, Waldemar Świerzy (1931-2013) was a graphic artist, book illustrator and a master of poster design. THNOC's exhibition showcases 17 of Świerzy's portraits, which focus primarily on titans of jazz and rhythm-and-blues, including Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald. During the concert's intermission, co-curator Eric Seiferth will be available to lead visitors through the galleries and answer any questions.
The free exhibition is on view Tuesday-Saturday, 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., and Sunday, 10:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., at 533 Royal St. through Dec. 30.
