The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival heads into a big final weekend with the Foo Fighters, My Morning Jacket, Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, Esperanza Spalding, Bonnie Raitt, Mystikal, Herbie Hancock, Ziggy Marley, the Eagles, Allen Toussaint, Irma Thomas, Donald Harrison, the Neville Brothers and many others. The special cultural pavilion honors the Mardi Gras Indians — and also straight from the streets of New Orleans to the Fair Grounds is Mr. Okra, who parks his produce truck near the Jazz & Heritage Stage. In addition to the wide array of musical offerings, the fest also has local cuisine, art and craft vendors, cooking demonstrations and more. Count Basin™ is ready for a four-day weekend. The following pages include previews for every performer, a map of the Fair Grounds, schedules and my critic's picks. Enjoy, and look for my reviews in the May 15 issue of Gambit.
