A group of musicians from Jazz at Lincoln Center will tour Manhattan in a Cadillac convertible today, stopping to perform at five outdoor locations around the city.

The jazz caravan, dubbed "Six Cats in a Hot Cadillac" by Jazz at Lincoln Center, is part of the organization's observation of Jazz Appreciation Month in April. The musicians will distribute beads, umbrellas, and a map showing jazz clubs around the city.

The caravan will stop at the New York Stock Exchange (11 Wall Street) at 11:30 a.m.; Sheridan Square (7th Avenue and Christopher Street) at 12: 15 p.m.; Duffy Square (Broadway at West 47th Street) at 1 p.m.; Jazz at Lincoln Center's Rose Hall in Columbus Circle at 1:30 p.m.; and the Apollo Theatre (253 West 125th Street) at 2:15 p.m.

Each stop on the trip will be decorated with jazz-related sidewalk art drawn in chalk by students from the Fashion Institute of Technology.
