the 2011 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival started her second of two long weekends of concerts. Big things happen at the great annual celebration of Louisiana music and culture: traditions are transmitted, jazz musicians are get engaged, and gallons of mango gel are the lining esophagus. You can connect to WWOZ online for a live broadcast from New Orleans.

NPR Music is there too. Were not the there in person as we were last year. But we have a small team of producers from Association of Independents of Radio, working in conjunction with WWOZ, sending us updates. And our contributor Geoffrey Himes has also been in the field to bring us some great stories.

Throughout this weekend and into the next week, we’ll be posting dispatches from Jazz Fest here at A supreme blog. We will keep this page up to date with links to all of our posts. Yeah you’re laughing.
