It is true that Jazz Fest features headliners who are not-jazz artists,
but it's also true that the festival features a broad range of jazz
artists.  

 

Here's an interview I did last year with Gregory Davis, trumpeter and
booker of the jazz talent at the festival, about the role of jazz at
Jazz Fest:

Gregory talks about this issue of non-jazz programming, because it comes
up year after year.

 

All the best,
