A friend and I went to the New Orleans Jazz Market, where I was the only person who was not local. This is a contemporary performing arts venue and jazz community centre for people of all ages. It has a theatre, full size bars, meeting rooms and interactive learning spaces. Local musician, Irvin Mayfield, a Grammy and Billboard-award winning Jazz musician with 25 albums to his name founded the centre. They had their regular Wednesday night jam sessions, where local musicians perform. I thoroughly enjoyed it and saw some of the musicians on the stages of the Jazz and Heritage Festival over the next couple of days. This city is just filled with the most amazing music and unbelievable talent.
