Dammit JazzFest

What the hell, JazzFest? I stick up for you when people question your line-up, saying it isn’t jazz enough, and you re-pay me by putting Jimmy Buffet on your poster? What about Jimmy Buffet is “New Orleans” or “Jazz” or “Heritage”? Since 1995, when Jazzfest posters started featuring portraits of musicians, every artist featured was a New Orleanian. The only stretch was in 2007 when Jerry Lee Lewis was featured, but he was at least from Louisiana. Which of the following does not belong: Dr. John, Irma Thomas, Allen Toussaint, The Neville Brothers, Jimmy Buffet?
