Jazz Concerts and Music Tours
Most of the biggest names in jazz have spent time in New Orleans, and you can walk in their footsteps by visiting their haunts on a walking tour around town. Hear their stories and check out the spots where they honed their silky smooth sounds, and then bring the day to a soulful close by crawling through multiple jazz clubs full of trumpets, piano, and sax.
