Here in the South, still reeling from the Civil Rights movement and race integration, the festivals’ founders — Quint Davis, George&nbsp;Wein, and Allison Miner — created a safe space for New&nbsp;Orleanians&nbsp;to come together, to hear each others’ music and to party — together.&nbsp;<a href="http://eveabrams.com" style="color: rgb(0, 113, 179);">Eve Abrams&nbsp;</a>brings us this profile of Allison Miner, a titan in New Orleans music, and the only person with a Jazz Fest stage named for her.</p> Tue, 30 Apr 2013 14:55:00 +0000 Eve Abrams 34149 at http://wwno.org New Orleans, The Birthplace Of Smoothie Jazz http://wwno.org/post/new-orleans-birthplace-smoothie-jazz <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Jazz Fest — our annual overdose of music and food — is synonymous with&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">New Orleans. Smoothie King — a healthy juice and food alternative — is&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">the antithesis of the city.
