The latest installment in the Musically Speaking series, "Wild Combination" is director Matt Wolf’s visually absorbing portrait of the seminal avant-garde composer, singer-songwriter, cellist, and disco producer Arthur Russell.
Once again, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation has assembled an all-star collection of Louisiana Cajun and Zydeco artists (like Chubby Carrier, left) for the 7th annual Louisiana Cajun-Zydeco Festival this weekend at the Old US Mint.
Preservation Hall is the kind of venerable institution that seems to have been around forever, but of course there was a time when it was new. Its founding in 1961 as a home for traditional jazz attracted national attention, including this video clip: a 2min 36sec story from the Huntley-Brinkley Report, NBC's national evening newscast back in that day.
This week’s program is part 2 of a 3 part series, celebrating 4 years of “New Orleans All the Way Live.” Today, we meet up with some of the chefs, cooks and other culinary caretakers. Tee Eva talks about fried grits, chef Susan Spicer explains how travel has influenced her cooking at Bayona, and Benjamin Wicks of Mahoney’s Po-Boy Shop describes the Peacemaker Po-Boy.
According to Herlin Riley, the modern drum kit was developed in New Orleans, so who better than Stanton Moore of Galactic (and, of course, the Stanton Moore Trio) to conduct a video tour of the modern drum kit? Definitely worth a look.
