Another great Jazz Fest

My husband is moping around drowning his post-Jazz Fest blues with coffee and B+C Powder. Despite the rain, I think this was the best Jazz Fest ever. The line-up was stellar and every band that played was showered with love by the ultimate audience. At the Jazz Fest, happiness is contagious. Where else can you see Little Big Town, Galactic and Fleetwood Mac or Hall & Oats, Trombone Shorty and Aaron Neville all within the span of three hours? So. Cool. And all of the proceeds from the Jazz Fest go

“to promote, preserve, perpetuate and encourage the music, arts, culture and heritage of communities in Louisiana through festivals, programs and other cultural, educational, civic and economic activities.” The Jazz and Heritage Foundation, nonprofit owner of the Jazz Fest

The Jazz and Heritage Foundation is the nonprofit owner of the Jazz Fest and is the reason we have WWOZ, the Heritage School of Music, which provides free music education to kids (Trombone Shorty and Big Sam are graduates), the future Jazz & Heritage Education Center, the Louisiana Cajun-Zydeco (Jun 8–9), Crescent City Blues & BBQ (Oct 18–20), Treme Creole Gumbo (Nov 9–10), and Congo Square Rhythms Festivals, along with so many more cultural, educational and economic programs.
