Set List: Paul Simon Debuts Two New Songs at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival

Paul Simon mesmerized the crowd on Friday night at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival with an eighteen-song set that included two Simon & Garfunkel songs and two from his upcoming album, Stranger to Stranger.

Opening with The Boy in the Bubble from Graceland, Simon ran through a list of his greatest solo hits with occasional moves into some deeper material such as Spirit Voices from The Rhythm of the Saints and Graceland's That Was Your Mother. Two songs the upcoming Stranger to Stranger, The Werewolf and Wristband were mixed in but, curiously, not Cool Papa Bell of which the audio was released on Thursday.

Closing the set was two Simon and Garfunkel classics, The Boxer and The Sound of Silence.
