Recording Session

Toussaint giving guidance and looking on in the recording session was a great moment. All of the music in the show I am sure makes the outside viewer wonder if it is forced or do they really play music that much down there?

We do.

Mama Roux

Coming full circle…the first recorded song to be selected by a character, which then becomes the background music, is from Dr. John’s ground breaking first record.
By the way, just for reference, you can stream it here: http://www.casttv.com/shows/treme/do-you-know-what-it-means/9ojhw71.

Buona Sera--Louis Prima

As has been pointed out on Back-of-Town, the use of this song was sheer genius. By illustrating that the radio station (OZ) is the official soundtrack of the city, I was reminded of my own constant connection with the sounds and happenings of NOLA.
The song also gave a nod to the huge Italian population base, a bit like the tomato in the sauce.

Treme Producers should inevitably read this site.

Since this is already picked up for a second season, we should have an area where were try to influence what is featured in future episodes. I don’t know what time frame they’re hoping to cover (I’ll probably never actually see the show), but it’s important to show how strong the post-flood music/arts community is. And we should help direct them.

You KNOW Rebirth will get a spot (as they should) but I want to plug Helen Gillet (who lives in musician’s village), her band Wazozo, Jayna Morgan, The Local Skank, The Noisician Coalition… 100s of new Brass bands have popped up.

It would also be nice if they gave a nod to Kerwin James.

I thought Kermit was great. I loved that they are using some real local musicians.
