Mixtape Mondays: the sounds of Jazz Fest

Jazz FestTime in New Orleans always passes a little too quickly and by the last day you realize how much more you need to see. It's how the city keeps people like me needing to return. 
Jazz Fest was everything I thought it would be and more  - music, art, and food. Everything from Latin music, to Saturday afternoon Southern rock jam bands, to gospel, to African drums, to Top 40 and of course Jazz - were present. Sharing space, sharing culture and sharing a love and passion for music. 
Here is a little taste of types of music I heard:

1. Oh My God - Mark Ronson feat. Lily Allen (brassy Jazz)
2. I'll Be Waiting - Adele (powerful, belting female songstresses)
3. Me & Mr. Jones - Amy Winehouse (bluesy)
4. I Feel Better - Gotye (uplifting)
5. A Day in the Life (Feat. John Lennon) - Cee-Roo (funky smooth Jazz)
6. Hold On - Alabama Shakes (southern rock)
7. Yalira - The Very Best (African)
8. A Little Bit - Madeleine Peyroux (contemporary blues)
9. Rave On - Julian Casablancas (classic rock)

Stay tuned for more NOLA...
