Taking a detour to New Orleans to attend Jazz Fest this weekend.
Here is a sampling of the artists who are playing this year - among many others too (I can't wait to listen to all the local Jazz music and Cajun Zydeco!)
Expect many a pictures and stories next week, because NOLA is magical.
1. Not Fade Away - Florence and the Machine (I've seen her once before and I will see her a million times more. She's great live. Also, this song has a very specific New Orleans feel to it)
2. Feeling Good - Nina Simone
3. I Can't Make You Love Me - Bon Iver (It's a cover of Bonnie Raitt, who is also performing.)
4. The Trapeze Swinger - Iron and Wine
5. How Come You Never Go There (Beck Remix) - Feist
6. Lover to Lover - Florence and the Machine (very soulful)
7. Circuital - My Morning Jacket
8. Tamacun - Rodrigo y Gabriela
9. How Do I Let a Good Man Down? - Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings
10. Ceiling of Plankton - GIVERS (they hail from Louisiana)
11. Falling or Flying - Grace Potter and the Nocturnals
12. 32 Flavors - Ani DiFranco
13. Little Fly - Esperanza Spalding
