[UPDATED BELOW] Here’s the first look at this year’s Jazz Fest poster saluting Louis Prima. Unfortunately, the email with the image came without the artist’s name, so we’ll update that ASAP. The festival will pay tribute to Prima in other ways as well this year. On the first Friday, April 23, Lena Prima, Louis’ daughter, will perform, and on Sunday, April 25, long-time partner Keely Smith will perform.
[Updated 10:25: As some of you hve written in and Jazz Fest has confirmed, the Louis Prima image was painted by the singer Tony Bennett.]
