Gambit Does Jazz Fest

Gambit Weekly, in New Orleans, has done another bang-up job with its preview of the Jazz and Heritage Festival.

Here's the intro to the piece:

"The last year has been a tumultuous one for the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, but now that spring is here, it all seems like a distant memory. Now we have more pressing concerns -- like how to see Wilco, Buckwheat Zydeco, Steve Winwood and Zap Mama when they all play at the same time on the first Friday afternoon.

When problems like that arise, I, Count Basin™ return, refreshed and ready to help you navigate your way through a festival that features between 400 and 500 acts on 12 stages spread out over seven days. And that's just the music. Don't forget the food, the visual arts, the cultural displays &138; and did I mention the food?"

In years past, I pored over the "cubes" and did lots of advance mapping out and planning. This year, it's going to be more of a last-minute deal, I think.
