Jazz Fest with Earl Palmer

   
 

April 28th, 1999 ~ This week, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival is in full swing. We'll have music of Festival artists from South Louisiana and beyond, and talk with the drummer who put the backbeat into rock & roll, Earl Palmer. Also, as a tribute to Duke Ellington on the occasion of the centennial of his birth, we'll hear his "New Orleans Suite."
