Episode 5 : New Creations

September 10, 2015



A jam between a visiting sax player and two locals on trumpet and trombone was such a high, that it spawned a brass band. Maybe it was the mojo of the place: New Orleans’ Tremé – the birthplace of jazz. Discover America’s oldest black neighborhood, rich in African-American and Creole roots, and a hotbed of live music till this day. For these cats, it’s about tradition and re-invention: New Creations. That’s post-Katrina New Orleans, we love it!
