Various Artists - 136 page Hard Back Book + 5 CDs
2019 CD boxset.
Few music festivals are as rich, profound, and joyous as the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, now entering it's 50th year. With 50 tracks recorded live, Jazz Fest captures the festival's ecstatic spontaneity, which defines the essence and vitality of American popular music. Ever since it's inception a half century ago, Jazz Fest has exuberantly expressed the unique confluence in New Orleans of Native American, African, Caribbean, European, Hispanic, and Asian communities.
With essays and annotations by Keith Spera, Karen Celestan, Robert Cataliotti, Jeff Place, Rachel Lyons, and Jon Pareles, plus photos spanning the festival's history, this box set delivers the sights and sounds of being at Jazz Fest for those who have not yet been there, and rekindles memories for the hundreds of thousands who return to New Orleans year after year.
