“A National Park in the middle of New Orleans”

New Orleans Jazz National Historic Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 9, 2012

We found this US National Park attraction (actually it is more of an office with a performance area in the back with a stage and seats for performances).

It is a great resource for books on jazz (CD's of artists as well) and information for jazz performances while you're in New Orleans area.

They have scheduled live performances (no entrance fees required) throughout the week.

(This place is close to Cafe Du Monde and Jackson Square).

Since Jazz is very much about moods and improvisations, I'd always wondered how Jazz musicians could ever work together. While we were in NOLA, we watched a free concert at their Old Mint location. There were altogether 4 performers. The main performer was a vocalist, singing Jazz songs accompanied by a pianist and a cellist. I can't think off of the top of my head what's the instrument played by the 4th person. Anyway, they worked in such fine harmony, if one can use harmony to describe something like Jazz.

Before the concert started, the audience was flooded with neon lights. My kids loved it.

Get the low down on the real history of Jass. Check out the Preservation Hall exhibit at the Old US Mint. Check the schedule and make sure to take in a free concert. We heard great live Jass and learned the history from local artist too.

Some of NOLA's best musicians perform daily themed sets, telling the tale of decades of traditional Jazz music
