This year was the 50 year celebration of the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Jazz Festival.  It is held every year for two weeks in the last week of April and the first week of May.  In addition to the many local musicians they also feature some “big name” artists.  This year I was fortunate to see The Doobie Brothers and Earth, Wind and Fire on the same day.  Both were outstanding performances.  Even though the rain was coming down all morning, the sun came out when The Doobie Brothers sang “Jesus is just alright with me”.
