After three years of a pandemic pause in an ever wobbly world, the 51st New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival returned, and in a big way. Around 475,000 attended the seven days of music, culture, food and art spread over two weekends, 13 stages and 500+ acts. This was my 18th Jazz Fest, so I’m still a piker, but managed to capture some 8,000 clicks and boil down that coverage for No Depression and the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation Archive.
