With a month to go before Jazz Fest, the schedule grids were released today on Jazz Fests Web Site. The annual preview press conference included some special announcements and moments.
-To get things rolling, Allen Toussaint performed with Troy Trombone Shorty Andrews. Toussaint even came with a special self-referential song commemorating the moment rhyming Trombone Shorty with the Fest turning 40.
-The Congo Square poster by Gilbert Fletcher captures Troy Andrews in a familiar pose.
-New fest merchandise includes snazzy and jazzy flip flops. Perfect for all Fest weather.
-Last but not least among the ceremonial curiosities were multiple shout-outs to city agencies that work with the festival. Both Arnie Fielkow and Cynthia Willard-Lewis made a point of mentioning the Sanitation Department. A far cry from the usual trash talk downtown.
-In case anyone was wondering, the vintage blue Bentley with the vanity plate SONGS parked in front of the Fair Grounds entrance belongs to Toussaint.
-The Allison Miner Music Heritage Stage resumes its pre-Katrina level of programming with full daily schedules of interviews with musicians.
- The Sync Up music industry conference during the Fest is open for registration. It's Web site went online today.
