NEW YORK, Oct. 6 (UPI) -- Numerous jazz trumpeters will ring in the October 15 museum opening at the simple New York home where Louis Armstrong lived from 1943 until his death in 1971.

The city will close off the working-class residential street for most of the day for a celebration featuring performances by trumpeters including Jon Faddis, Clark Terry, Randy Brecker, Tom Harrell, Cecil Bridgewater, Ingrid Jensen, Jimmy Owens, Randy Sandke, Warren Vache Jr. and Terrell Stafford.

The Louis Armstrong House and Archives in the Corona neighborhood in Queens, was named a national historic landmark in 1977. It recently completed a $1.6 million renovation. It is now owned by Queens College.

The site's memorabilia includes Armstrong's trumpets, his personal scrapbooks and rare photographs.
