The 35th Annual New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival starts today. The first wave of music & events is this weekend (Fri — Sun) and then it starts again next week, but lasts 4 days (Thus — Sun). Here’s today’s lineup of musical acts. The Jazz Fest website has more information on what’s happening and when it’s happening.
Also, if you can’t make the Fest you can still listen to the music that was played there. Go to this link within a few days of the performance, and you can download the music (for a fee, of course). You can even download a CD case insert.
