PFF SpringFest: JAZZ FEST: A NEW ORLEANS STORY
FRANK MARSHALL, RYAN SUFFERN | USA | 2022 | 95 MIN | ENGLISH
Widely considered to be one of the world’s premier music events, The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival (or Jazz Fest, as it’s more commonly known) has been celebrating the artistic and cultural heritage of Louisiana for more than half a century. Each year, hundreds of thousands of music fans get the opportunity to experience some of the world’s brightest talents (and sample some of Louisiana’s most delectable cuisine). This entertaining and insightful documentary takes a look at Jazz Fest’s historic 50th anniversary event, showcasing performances by everyone from Herbie Hancock and B.B. King to Pitbull and Katy Perry. These electrifying numbers are interspersed with interviews and archival footage outlining the gradual growth of Jazz Fest into a vast institution honoring the music and culture of The Big Easy.
