The number of ways to experience the food at Jazz Fest can be overwhelming, but some of the options can actually take you farther than others. For instance, in years past, I would have headed straight for a meat-pie line. This year, it’s all about that Doh Doh and Jama Jama from the Benacchin stand.
One Wednesday Big Daddy O' will Sit down with us at the crossraod and share is new CD "Used Blues" that will be released on Friday. We will play some songs from the CD and a couple of them live as well. He will tell us about the release/Rabadash Party to be held on Friday at Southport Hall.

If you tune into WWOZ's Morning Set this Tuesday, April 13 you will be in for a special treat as New Orleans' own Sarah Quintana will be performing live in-studio starting around 8:30 AM. Sarah earned her chops performing on the streets of the French Quarter and has since gained worldwide recognition as one of the most talented vocalists to emerge from New Orleans.
Tonight, in honor of the late great educator, jazzman, WWOZ DJ, and all around upright bad ass Don "Moose" Jamison, we'll put the epic late period John Coltrane composition "Ascension" on around 10 PM Tueday 4/6/10 on the Kitchen Sink. This is to commemorate Easter for those of us who celebrate such things.
