JazzFest in New Orleans: A Blanket of Humidity and Humility

The 42nd JazzFest kicked off the first weekend of May. I was fortunate enough to attend the final day of the 2nd weekend of the festival. May 8 proved to be another humid afternoon in New Orleans. The outside stages were borderline unbearable but the “Jazz” tent was covered and mist stations were set up around the festival as cooling stations to comfort  patrons. It’s always difficult attending festivals due to the amount of sacrifices. When traveling with a large group of friends, you can be pulled in many different directions. Because I was rolling deep with close friends, my coverage was limited. Below, you can find photos and video I compiled including an incredible cover of Beck’s “Sex Laws” by The Punch Brothers and the undeniable power of the great colossus, Sonny Rollins. Enjoy!
