Plus, hear recordings and live samplings of her work.

The Jazz Institute of Chicago is celebrating the centennial of Louis Armstrong’s arrival to Chicago with a series of performances, discussions, and showings throughout 2022. No conversation about Louis would be complete without discussing his wife, Lil Hardin Armstrong, an accomplished pianist and composer who helped shape the life and music of her husband’s internationally celebrated career.
