I’ll be there

jazzfest

New Orleans Jazz Festival   Turk Murphy Columbia Records   THE New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival started in 1970 with performances by Mahalia Jackson and Duke Ellington, Pete Fountain, Al Hirt, Clifton Chenier, Fats Domino, The Meters, The Preservation Hall Band and included parades every day with The Olympia Brass Band and Mardi Gras Indians.   I’ve been to “JazzFest” six times since 1990 and plan on returning this year in April.   I’ve seen everyone from Stevie Ray Vaughan and Bob Dylan to countless blues, soul, gospel and zydeco acts over the years.   It’s a music and food and good time orgy of non-stop fun.

Lp Cover Lover launched on November 23, 2006 with “Music for Daydreaming”. That’s 18 months of sharing our favorite covers every day. Today we celebrate our 2,000th cover and thank everyone that has written, left comments and sent in photos.   I’m going to leave this boring party now and go pull out more records to post.
