The festival promotion companies and organizers supposedly know the music and 
the audience.
 
The words Jazz Festival conjur an image of big crowds and [potential] profit 
making events.
 
If the word jazz can be kidnapped and still kept hostage 30+ years after 
instrumental_pop_music somehow decided to call itself *smooth jazz* then 
hijacking *jazz festival* to put a bunch of non-jazzers on the bill is the sorry 
next step in this evolution.
 
Plus+ [IMO] every star rocker and well known musician outside of jazz would love 
the hook of being on the bill at a New Orleans event; the hip slick and cool 
place to go and play simply because it's in the headlines, and I'll just wager 
work at a reduced fee.

Hmmmm.....maybe it's me that's living in a parallel universe but Bob Dylan, 
Lionel Richie, Keith Urban, etc.......at the New Orleans Jazz Festival? I 
realize so called jazz festivals have change dramatically over the years - 
mainly due to the deaths of so many marquee jazz names and so little attention 
paid to the upcoming young jazz stars over the years on these festivals - now 
not so young - but come on folks. They couldn't do better than that in 
representing this great music in this great music city?
