I'm off to New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival this Weekend

I plucked the following text and video from my December post on this years New Orleans Jazz Heritage Festival, which is where I'll be spending my weekend. Glad to learn it's not expected to rain this year. I wanted to go to French Quarter Fest last weekend, but decided to rest up for this weekend instead.

Below, per NOLA.com, is a video of "an all-star jazz band featuring trumpeter Nicholas Payton, clarinetist Michael White, trombonist Troy Andrews, bassist Roland Guerin, drummer Shannon Powell and George Wein, Jazz Fest's founder, on keyboards performed 'Struttin' With Some Barbecue.'" Beautiful music that really puts you in the mood for Jazz Fest.

Have a fantastic time, Bonnaroo is our drug of choice! Remember to out your feet up any time you get the opportunity, they'll thank you for it.

New Orleans and Jazz? What a great combo! If you get the traveling bug and still haven't reached your fill, head out my way and come to this year's Playboy Jazz Festival. This is still is a big annual romp for my wife's side of the family. Hope you have a great time, VP.
