AliveTampaBay Music Columnist Jessica Wheeler (with cool videos): Since its beginning in 1970, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival has featured a whole lot more than just jazz. Blues, funk, folk, rap, country, bluegrass, gospel, Cajun, Latin, and Afro-Caribbean music are all featured at the festival, which sprawls across two long weekends of music. This year’s festival, beginning on Friday and ending on Sunday, May 1, is no exception.
