Talking All That Jazz

The New Orleans Jazz Festival rolled on this past weekend with no troubles. The festival was started 40 years ago and had a lot of old school/new school flavor this year.

Sunday's Jazz Fest finale paid heavy homage to music's elder statesmen. Neil Young, 63, was on stage for two hours, while Allen Toussaint, 71, preceded him, and the Neville Brothers, who range from 61 to 72, followed him.

With the stories of swine flu going around it was a thought the show wouldn't be too successful. Actually the fans came out in more support for the fellow artist. The food booth was crazy as well.

This was the second year of the return for the Jazz festival since Hurricane Katrina in 2005 . New Orleans-native rock favorites The Radiators played on a big stage at one end of the festival while the Neville Brothers played one at the other end.

Recession, depression, pandemic to name a few couldn't stop the festival no matter what. The feeling good music gives you is priceless. That is why nothing can contain you once its in your ear!
