Jazz Fest with Randy Newman and Geno Delafose


April 26th, 2006 ~ We've put away the Mardi Gras decorations, which means it's time for the Jazz Festival in New Orleans! Tune in this week for some of our favorite Fest music and more. Nick joins the (New Orleans) LA to L.A. piano man Randy Newman for an onstage interview and live set. Then it's over to the Fais-do-do Stage for a visit with Eunice, Louisiana-born accordion player and singer Geno Delafose. And there's lots of great, live Jazz Fest music that you might've missed the first go-around. Drink plenty of water and don't forget the sunscreen.
