New Orleans photos - part 3

This is the final batch of photos from my US trip, including several from the final day of Jazz fest, which was one of the best I can remember. For more details check out my earlier blog entries.
First, this is soul singer Lee Fields who was excellent with his band the Expressions at One Eyed Jacks.
Supporting Lee was this good looking but rather boring singer/songwriter Kriston Diable.
On to Jazz Fest now, with Cajun star D L Menard.
The classic New Orleans R and B revue featured four of the surviving artists from the late 50s and early 60s. This is Frankie Ford, most famous for Sea Cruise.
Here is Al 'Carnival Time' Johnson.
Still going strong, his voice as good as ever, is Clarence 'Frogman' Henry.
And this is 83 year old Robert 'Barefootin'' Parker.
Next on the Gentilly Stage, and still looking and sounding great, this is the Soul Queen of New Orleans Irma Thomas.
Playing to a big audience on the Congo Square stage, this is soul singer Jeffrey Osborne.
And in the Blues Tent, here is Walter 'Wolfman' Washington.
In the Gospel Tent, here is Kathy Taylor.
Back on the Gentilly Stage, and backing brother Aaron, this is Charles Neville.
Providing a superb finale to Jazz Fest, here is the incomparable Aaron Neville.
Aaron performed Hercules with one of the younger Neville family members Jason.
On our final day we had a meet-up with another groupof Woodies, who started off in Dallas - Ken Major, Gordon Fleming, Brenda Guest, Brenda Gunn and Dave and Julie Thomas.
We went on for a meal at Mulate's Cajun restaurant, where the music was provided by La Touche.
