On Sunday, photographer Patrick Ainsworth shot the last day of Jazz Fest, and here are his highlights. For him, the set of the day came from Aaron Neville, who closed the Gospel Tent. He wrote:
He was crying or sweating a lot, but either way Aaron Neville's performance was incredibly powerful. It reminded me of when I waylaid by Nina Simone while sitting in the grass at the Jazz Tent in the early '90s. I've never really been an Aaron Neville fan. Never got his singing. Now I get it, and he really is a musical giant.
