Brass Pass: Trombone Shorty Takes Baton from Nevilles at JazzFest
Professor Longhair was looking down from above and two of the Neville Brothers - including a snappy-dressed, Doo Wop-inclined Aaron - were across the Fair Grounds. Fortunate, then, that a lanky kid from the Treme didn't need any of their help. By the end of his closing set at JazzFest on Sunday, Trombone Shorty was even telling producer Quint Davis what to do.
Watching the Crowd (and Bands) at JazzFest's Final Day
The first lesson every festival-goer must learn is that at any standard large event, it is, by necessity, only sort of about the music. Behind every moment spent actually enjoying a band, there's a trek through an impossible crowd, or $5 spent on a Coors Light. Or a half-hour wait outside the porta-potties. This is especially true at Jazz Fest, where your correspondent repeatedly found himself immersed in the sheer spectacle of it all.

Fest Finder: 6 JazzFest Meeting Places

JazzFest Entrepreneur Squeezes In Lemonade Stand Between Revelry, Homework
by Anisa Peraica
It's Lemonade Day in Louisiana, when we remember a drink associated with warm weather and childhood. During Jazz Fest season, it can be associated with money. One freckle-faced entrepreneur in particular has made a niche for himself in the Bayou St. John community. 10 -year -old Lyle Usdin, along with some of his neighbors, have made a tradition out of selling lemonade at the corner of Ursulines and Lopez streets for the past three years during Jazz Fest season.
Quilts, Fry Bread Reveal Native American Traditions at JazzFest
Stumbling onto a Native American village after hours basking in the Jazz Fest sun (or rain) might have you thinking hallucination. Worry not. Trading electric guitar strums for the steady beat of tribal drums and blue tents for tan teepees, this year’s cultural exchange pavilion pays homage to the Native Americans.

JazzFest Weather Update: Sunny Saturday
Mudfest is likely to remain with us for the duration of Jazzfest. But the sun will finally come out and get a little dirty, even without Patti Smith telling her to do so. Starting off cool this morning, temperatures are slated to make a slow climb into the 70s this afternoon, producing some mild weather by the time the headliners take to their stages. The chance of precipitation is at 0 percent all afternoon. Click through for full details:
