2009 review at Neil Young rocked in the free world at Jazz Fest - NOLA.com by Keith Spera, Music writer, The Times-Picayune.
From New Orleans Jazz Fest recap: the best of the best - Collegenews.:
"The 40th Annual New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival is in the books and it will go down as one of the best in history. The two weekends were packed with legends of rock, jazz, blues and funk and up and coming stars in a tapestry of music unmatched in any festival around the world. In celebration, College News counts down the top 25 performances from the fest.
Here they, ranked Pitchfork-style, are from top to bottom:
1. Neil Young - 10: The absolute perfect show. A dream set-list* played with precision from the man whose career defines Rock. It will never die."
From Festival Crashers » Blog Archive » Neil Young’s Perfect 10 @ Jazz Fest Posted by teibs :
"A perfect 10. I honestly wasn’t sure I’d ever see one. A perfect 10 requires everything to be just right on stage and just right from where you stand.*
On stage you need: a tight band with a immense stable of songs to pull from. A front man who knows when to keep it tight, when to sprinkle in banter and when to solo. A well-paced set filled with crowd favorites, but not a best-of catalog, building to a dynamic finish and epic encore."
