We visit Snug Harbor Jazz Bistro, a music club on Frenchmen Street that features live performances 7 days a week. We start off with Rebecca Barry, an Alabama native who came to New Orleans in the 90s to study with players like Tony Dagradi, Ed Peterson and Ellis Marsalis.
In the second half, we enjoy the sounds of drummer and vibraphonist Jason Marsalis, the youngest member of the first family of jazz. After a recording hiatus of close to nine years, Jason has gone into the studio to record the CD "Music Update" on ELM records. On the show, we hear some live performances of songs from the new recording.
