Jazz fest is coming. Just spoke with writer and pianist, Noah Bonaparte Pias from the Gambit Weekly who was filling me in on the massive party that is Jazz fest. I counted 11 stages on the Jazz and Heritage website and was pleased to see a wide diversity of talent and music. Love the fact that it all started in 1970 when Mahalia Jackson and Duke Ellington among others were returning to the city of New Orleans. I think everyone should return this city to pay respect and continue the most rare and richest treasures our country has to offer, music for the soul.
