Jazzfest line up disappoints

The line up for this year's New Orleans Jazzfest has been announced, and I reckon it's the most disappointing yet, with a few exceptions. There's Bobby Blue Bland and Willie Nelson, and old favourites such as Irma Thomas and the Neville Brothers, but very little else of great interest. These are the best known headliners: Arcade Fire, Bon Jovi, Jimmy Buffett, Kid Rock, John Mellencamp, Wilco, Neville Brothers, Willie Nelson, Strokes, Robert Plant, Lauryn Hill, Tom Jones, Jeff Beck, Sonny Rollins, John Legend, Wyclef Jean, Dr John, Cyndi Lauper, Allen Toussaint, Bobby Bland, Marcia Ball, Jesse Winchester, Walter 'Wolfman' Washington, Maze, Arlo Guthrie, Irma Thomas, Gregg Allman Blues Band, Robert Cray, Ken Mo, Mighty Clouds of Joy, Kermit Ruffins, Ahmad Jamal, Rance Allen, Ricky Skaggs, Sonny Landreth, Henry Butler, Maceo Parker, Michelle Shocked, Charlie Musselwhite.

Few of these so-called jazzfests are really jazz festivals.
