I second that Dr.   Detroit has the best "jazz" festival in the world!!! Let's hope it stays that way.

>>> "If you want to know just how far jazz has slipped in the hierarchy of pop music, just look the line-up for next year’s New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Sure, Herbie Hancock is a headliner, but the rest of the names at the top of the bill to be announced Wednesday morning are a hodge-podge of pop, rock and R&B stars from various eras.
>>> 
>>> The headline acts include the Eagles, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Al Green and Bonnie Raitt for older fans; Foo Fighters, Florence&  the Machine and My Morning Jacket for contemporary rock lovers; Bon Iver for fans of indie, electronic songs; the Zac Brown Band for hard-core country fans; Jill Scott and Ne-Yo for those who like contemporary rhythm and blues; and Paulina Rubio, for Latin pop fans."
