The festival's 2018 commemorative poster features a depiction of Fats Domino by artist Terrance Osborne. But hang it next to Osborne's 2012 Jazz Fest poster, and something special happens.
Osborne revealed Tuesday on Facebook that the two posters make a matched set, with the red house on the right side of the 2012 poster matching up perfectly with the house on the left side of the 2018 version.
The 2012 poster, featuring Treme native Trombone Shorty and titled “Porch Song,” was the first of three Jazz Fest posters by Osborne. He also created the 2014 poster.
Domino, the rock 'n' roll founding father who lived in New Orleans' Lower 9th Ward for most of his life, died Oct. 24 at age 89. He will be the subject of a tribute at the Fair Grounds on Saturday, April 28, featuring Jerry Lee Lewis and members of Domino's band.
