I actually agree with the paper that this is a great JazzFest lineup.
But I think this is the best national lineup we’ve had in a while. Stevie Wonder, Al Green, Robert Plant w/ Allison Kraus (my brother got me the CD for Xmas, and it’s terrific), Randy Newman, Cassandra Wilson, John Prine, and Quint even caved to someone’s Raconteurs suggestion, despite his preference only to have acts his own age.
I often see the people I see all year, but at JF, it’s a little different, and I never get tired of it. I’m feeling warmer already.
