Jim, Jazz Fest always has plenty of top notch jazz. The Jazz Tent always provides that.

The official name of Jazz Fest is the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Considering we are talking about New Orleans, anything from blues to jazz to zydeco to Mardi Gras Indians to good old Rock and Roll is part of NOLA's heritage.

Strongest lineup in years! Sorry I will probably miss it, but still good to see

Well that's good to know. Still, it hurts my eyes to see Springsteen on a Jazz Fest lineup.

Bruce Springsteen has become something like a folk hero in New Orleans because of his emotional post-Katrina performance in 2006. I think they would have him every year if they could.

I take it you are not a fan? I like Bruce, so I have no problem with him, but I know what you mean.

For me, I will never forget the anger and confusion I felt the first time BON JOVI played Jazz Fest I felt a disturbance in the Force...

Oh, man! Bon Jovi. Jeez. I guess I understand the Springsteen now since he is a supporter, but no I'm not a fan. And I have really tried. Something about his work doesn't resonate with me. Oddly enough I like Bon Jovi but would equally scoff at their presence at a Jazz Fest, unless of course they played Spinal Tap's epic "Jazz Odyssey." They probably throw that "Heritage" in there just to widen the array of acts.

Sure, but they also include it because there is a lot of uniquely New Orleans music that is not jazz.

The Meters, Buckwheat Zydeco, Dr. John, The Radiators, Allen Toussaint, The Wild Magnolias and so on would not have a place at most "strictly jazz" festivals. NO Jazz Fest is more than that. It is the biggest, best and most truly eclectic music festival on Earth.

Sounds like a musically rich festival. Maybe someday I'll make it there. And Justin Beiber will be playing lol.

The headliners obviously get the headlines but they are almost besides the point... the great moments at the great jazzfest just come wondering around to a lot of the smaller stages.

After having all these intimate encounters the big stages just feel like another concert...

I have the same experiences at Blues festivals all summer. A lot of the best music is made away from the main stages and the headliners who play the same show over and over. Linsey Alexander played one of the best sets I've seen at a blues fest and he was in a tent with about 150-200 people. He was nothing short of exhilarating.

I've tried too. His songs mostly sound the same to me. And not all that interesting. There are a few songs that I really like though.

I just had to bump this up to point out how strong the first weekend is in particular, and point out some "undercard" acts who have ABB ties and/or are favorites of many on this site.

Santana, Phish and Clapton would be the major headliners in order from Friday to Sunday, and I would probably rank them in that order in terms of my interest. I have paid money to see all three in the past, and for me, that is a strong top of the lineup.

But there are some treats in the fine print as well. Friday is topped by Santana, but I would love to see salsa icon Ruben Blades, who sang Kam-na-lay on Derek's album Joyful Noise. I'm not a big Drive-By Truckers fan, but I know many here are, and Jason Isbell is on the list that day as well. Some of the blues fans here may know Little Freddie King, another strong act on Friday, and people may know Chris Thomas King from his role as bluesman Tommy Johnson in O Brother, Where Art Thou?

Saturday is one of the strongest days I've seen Jazz Fest put out in years, even if you don't like Phish. Robert Plant will be there with his new band the Sensational Space Shifters. Boz Scaggs, who recorded Loan Me A Dime with Duane and is well loved on this site, will be there. Keb' Mo' will be there, fresh from his gig at the recent Gregg tribute. Sonny Landreth is right up there with Derek and Warren among the best slide players in the world. Anders Osborne is probably known to the Deadheads here for his recent stint on guitar and vocals with Phil Lesh. Royal Southern Brotherhood with Devon Allman and Yonrico Scott are also on the bill. Branford Marsalis is there on Saturday as well as Latin jazz supergroup Los Hombres Calientes. This lineup just doesn't quit! Possibly the best single day of live music the planet Earth will see in 2014.

Sunday is Clapton day, and I imagine most people here would make that a priority, but longtime HTW favorites North Mississippi Allstars are also on the bill. John Hiatt will be there and it would make sense for there to be some collaboration with NMAS, since they played together before. Famed African guitarist Bombino, subject of a recent thread here, will most likely be playing the Afro-centric Congo Square stage on Sunday.

I am still unsure if I will be able to go, but consider this post my humble attempt at trying to convince everyone to make it to New Orleans for what I consider the best Jazz Fest lineup since before Katrina.

That's definitely a Heritage lineup but it's quite a lineup. Sonny Landreth is stunning. I got to be right in front of him at Western Maryland Blues Fest last summer and holy crap. I can't believe the things his fingers do.

I like the song "Born To Run" and I like his band's work on Ian Hunter's "You're Never Alone With A Schizophrenic" - that's pretty much where it ends for me. But I've listened to a lot of his records, especially the early stuff and the live box too. I thought for sure I'd find something to like on the live box and I did but not enough to convince me. Then I saw Bruce take a solo on the Roy Orbison's Black & White Night. I had only been playing a short time and was confident I had been playing longer than Bruce, based on his solo. I know he's not a lead guitarist but if you're going to play that bad, don't take a solo. I'm still irrationally irritated by that.

Flights booked. 2nd weekend for me. As Rob says the first weekend has an amazingly strong lineup but I've always wanted to see Springsteen in the U.S. and the thought of seeing him in New Orleans has the hairs standing up on my neck. Love John Fogerty too!
We're fllyng to Chicago on the 24th then driving south, The "Blues Highway" in reverse I guess. Should be some trip, Roll on spring!!!

Good for you geordielad! NO Jazz Fest is one of America's greatest cultural treasures. You won't regret it! Let me know if you have any questions about anything. I used to live in NOLA and have been to Jazz Fest many times.

The Springsteen detractors can say what they want, but the one thing Bruce really excels at is playing to a big stadium/festival size audience. The first big rock show I ever saw was Bruce on the Born In The USA tour at the old Omni in Atlanta, and his music is just built for the giant-sized scale of a gig like Jazz Fest.

I will bump this thread up from time to time with any updates or suggestions. In a month or so they will release the "cubes" schedule, with each act given a specific stage and time in a handy, visual grid format.

Cheers Rob, I have friends in New Orleans and have visited them a few times over the years. I managed a day at Jazzfest in 2005 and can't wait to repeat the experience.

"In 2006 when Springsteen performed in New Orleans it was less than a year after Hurricane Katrina hit, and "The Boss" moved thousands to tears at Jazz Fest by belting out such lyrics as "How can a poor man stand such times as these?""
http://www.billboard.com/articles/news/510104/bruce-springsteen-making-jazz -fest-return

"Springsteen, of course, has a history with Jazz Fest. At the 2006 festival, the first after Hurricane Katrina, he and his largely untested Seeger Sessions Band rose to the occasion with a show for the ages. Equal parts exorcism, outrage and embrace, it stoked and soothed still-raw emotions.

His return with his veteran E Street Band was the most anticipated booking of the 2012 Jazz Fest. The vast audience that overflowed the Acura Stage field, rendering the dirt track all but impassable at points and estimated by Jazz Fest producer/director Quint Davis to be around 65,000 strong, spoke to that anticipation."
http://www.nola.com/jazzfest/index.ssf/2012/04/bruce_springsteen_and_the_e_ st.html

"As I joined many thousands of fellow New Orleanians and visitors on the New Orleans Jazz Fest's Acura Stage field late on the afternoon of April 30, 2006, anticipation ran high. We all knew that Bruce Springsteen, aided by his new Seeger Sessions Band, would likely do something special at the first Jazz Fest since Hurricane Katrina's devastation only eight months earlier.

At Jazz Fest 2006, thousands of fans gathered around the Acura Stage to hear Bruce Springsteen.
But we had no idea. I am not alone in ranking that show as quite likely the best, and certainly most emotional, musical experience of my life. And given my profession, I've seen a lot of concerts."
http://www.nola.com/jazzfest/index.ssf/2012/04/remembering_bruce_springstee ns.html

and from Jazz Fest producer Quint Davis
On what Springsteen's 2006 concert represents to New Orleans: "He opened himself up, absorbed all the grief and the pain, and converted it into music."

Performing in 2006 in New Orleans singing "City in Ruins": "The last time he walked on that stage this was a city in ruins. Now this is a city that's alive. It's a city of triumph. We've come a long way."

I've been talking to a couple of old Jazz Fest buddies the past couple of days, and I think I am officially going

My friend Ben Hernandez, bassist for Atlanta jamband Deep Blue Sun, is just as stoked about the first weekend lineup as I am. I think we have talked each other into going! Now we just need to talk our friend Ira, who played with Ben in another band some here may remember called Freak The Jones, into coming down from Maine to join us.

My wife won't be able to make it because she has a new job and doesn't have vacation days yet, but she has strongly encouraged me to go with Ben and Ira and have a good time, since she knows how much I love Jazz Fest.

Now THAT is a good woman! I think I will keep her

Just got tix for Drive By Truckers at the New Orleans Civic Theatre May 2nd and Royal Southern Brotherhood's website has them playing the Botanic Gardens at City Park May 1st. This is shaping up nicely! Just need something to pop up in Chicago for the previous weekend.

Wish I could be there, but was just in NOLA last June and can't get there that often.

Couldn't let this one pass: Springsteen actually IS a lead guitarist, and was once thought of around Jersey as quite the gunslinger. He realized he wasn't going to be another Jimmy Page and went in another direction, but still can tear it up when he wants. Many examples attest to it, but check out "Light of Day" with him guesting at a Joan Jett show for one. Sorry, I didn't see him solo on the Roy Orbison special, but I will try to catch it. He might not be flashy, but he puts his heart into it.
