    Torrential rains, high winds, tornadoes and flooding couldn’t stop Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers from their triumphant return to the 2017 edition of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, their second appearance at JazzFest in the band’s storied 40-year career.

    “Swingin’,” off 1999’s Echo, made its tour debut in New Orleans, sandwiched in between killer takes on “Mary Jane’s Last Dance” and “You Don’t Know How It Feels.”

    “Well, we’re in New Orleans at the JazzFest,” Tom said after the band wound down “Free Fallin’,” “and we thought we ought to play a slow blues for y’all.”

    And with that, Tom and the guys launched into a scorching “Good Enough,” the second tour debut of the show. This version of the monster track off 2010’s Mojo was huge, with Mike Campbell’s song-closing epic guitar solo riding over the top of Scott Thurston and Tom’s intertwining guitar riffs.
