Satchmo SummerFest Picks- Saturday

Ensemble Fatien plays at 1:45 PM on the third floor of the Old Mint.  This New Orleans supergroup has a great new recording out and their set will be a fascinating blend of local sounds and the sounds of Africa.  At 2:30 PM, Kermit Ruffins recounts a mind-altering experience he had visiting the home of Louis Armstrong, one of his idols, in a seminar session at the Palm Court Jazz Café. The trombonist Delfeayo Marsalis (pictured) plays regularly with his Uptown Jazz Orchestra, but its more rare to hear him with his quintet. I revisited listening to his “Pontius Pilate’s Decision” CD and remember how great that recording is. They play at the Red Beans and Ricely stage at 3:45 PM.  The trumpeter Leon “Kid Chocolate” Brown closes out the day at the newest stage at the fest.  He plays 5:30 PM at Governor Nicholls and French Market Place.
