  • Hugh Masekela has canceled tour dates due to illness.

A Hugh Masekela appearance at an Atlanta jazz festival has been canceled due to illness.

Masekela was scheduled to perform twice at the the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. His name no longer is listed on Jazz Fest's cubes, and a set featuring the Jazz Epistles now lists Terence Blanchard instead of Masekela. Jazz Fest has not confirmed whether Masekela will perform or not.

Masekela spoke to Gambit a few weeks ago about about his music.

Update: Jazz Fest confirmed Masekela will not perform at the festival.
