Jazz Fest: The Second Weekend

Reports are still coming in from the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival (look for a photo gallery a bit later this week) but here are a few tidbits from the weekend…..Thunderstorms led to the cancellation of the Fest proper on Friday for the first time in 13 years, and only the 3rd time in the history of the festival…...As one might imagine, that night’s Gov’t Mule show drew in some guest players, including Chris Robinson, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Audley Freed and Karl Denson…..After that gig Warren Haynes made it to the New Earth Mud show and rejoined Robinson for ‘Stealin’‘ & ‘Sugaree.’.....Also that night, a number of musicians appeared with Mofro at the Mermaid Lounge: Ben Ellman, Theresa Andersson and the Duo, Marco Benevento and Joe Russo…..The next day at the fairgrounds, Andersson’s longstanding collaborator, Anders Osborne appeared with multiple celebrated area musicians, among others, George Porter Jr., Brian Stoltz and John Gros…..Carlos Santana, a late addition to the festival invited Hugh Masekela to perform with his group….On their second night at the Orpheum Theater the Mule brought Ivan Neville, Rob Somerville and Smoky Greenwell onto the stage…...Neville also collaborated with Galactic…..Back to KD, he performed well past dawn this morning at the House of Blues, with numerous guests including Mike Dillon, Skerik and former Tiny Universe member Carlos Washington
