If you are a certain age, you know Louis Prima’s songs and wild onstage antics from TV or Las Vegas. If you’re younger, you know his songs recorded by other artists, in TV commercials or as the swingin’ voice of King Louie in Disney’s “The Jungle Book.”

But a new exhibit at the New Orleans Jazz Museum at the Old U.S. Mint will tell you the full story of this New Orleans native. The exhibit, “The Wildest: Louis Prima Comes Home,” features artifacts, photos and videos detailing his rise to entertainment stardom. It’s on display through May 2020.
