Looking at the history of New Orleans through the lens of one of the city’s biggest annual musical events, Frank Marshall and Ryan Suffern’s documentary Jazz Fest: A New Orleans Story captures the spirit of its multicultural host city and celebrates the 50th anniversary of The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Featuring artists as varied as Earth, Wind & Fire, Bruce Springsteen, Irma Thomas, Pitbull, Al Green, Katy Perry, Herbie Hancock, Tom Jones, and many others, Jazz Fest: A New Orleans Story encompasses decades of history in a way that feels like a warm introduction for first-timers and a tribute longtime fans can savor.
