If the 9AM phone calls I received from my friends down in New Orleans are any indication, this year’s Jazz Fest took things to a whole new level. Yesterday, the Neville Brothers made their first post-Katrina appearance in the Crescent City to perform a scorching set that closed things out at the Fairgrounds.

HT Contributor Randy Ray recently spoke with Chris Kuroda about life after Phish and doing lights for the likes of R. Kelly, Aerosmith and the Black Crowes. CK5 also mentions that Trey Anastasio contacted him recently to work on a new project. It’s nice to see that just like us, Kuroda clearly misses the Phish experience.
