Marc Stone

The first week of the New Orleans Jazz Festival wrapped up on Sunday, and it was a spectacular day! Initially, there were concerns about rain, but the weather turned out perfect with clear skies and a refreshing breeze. The crowds were smaller than Saturday's, making it easier to navigate the festival grounds and access food quickly.

Starting with socially distanced sessions and emailed tracks in the early days of the pandemic, progressing through the chaotic, stop-and-go re-emergence of live music and travel, Marc Stone drew together a diverse cast of musicians from different corners of his musical life to create his first studio album to follow his two most recent releases - 2023's full band "Live at New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival 2023" (Munck Music) and a stunning solo performance captured on 2019's "Live at Tipitina's" (Independent).
