EPISODES OF AMERICAN ROUTES WITH WYNTON MARSALIS

FROM THE SHOW: DAVID AMRAM & MARCUS ROBERTS

After losing his sight at age 5, Marthaniel "Marcus" Roberts began studying piano at a school for the blind near his native Jacksonville, Florida. An outspoken proponent for traditionalism, the pianist was a member of Wynton Marsalis' band from 1985 - 1991. He is a jazz faculty member at Florida State University in Tallahassee, and records prolifically, reinterpreting and updating the compositions of his heroes, Duke Ellington, Nat "King" Cole, Scott Joplin and others.

DAVID AMRAM & MARCUS ROBERTS

We profile two men that begin in classical and jazz and move in different directions. Buttressed by a conservatory background, French horn player and composer David Amram moves freely and eclectically across genres of Latin, jazz, folk and classical music. Blind pianist Marcus Roberts speaks about his time spent as protege of Wynton Marsalis and looking back over the history of jazz to his touchstones, James P. Johnson, Monk, Jelly Roll Morton and others.

I DIDN'T LEARN THAT IN SCHOOL!

It's time to go back to school! Many of the lessons learned in school are valuable, but more often people carry their memories of great teachers, friends and growing up to think for themselves. Likewise, much of America's greatest music -- blues, jazz, country, Cajun -- was passed on informally from master players, in clubs, at jam sessions or dances. We'll visit two special professors who really believe in teaching the musical vernacular both formally and informally. Ray Charles shows kids how to play the blues at his Los Angeles studio, and trumpeter Wynton Marsalis tutors New Orleans high school students in jazz technique and appreciation. We'll also talk to the all-teen Cajun band from French Louisiana, Feufollet, about why they learned to play traditional music. Plus, tune in to children's songs and back-to-school anthems from Chuck Berry, Louis Armstrong, Willie Nelson and Aretha Franklin.

AFTER THE STORM VIII: A YEAR IN THE FLOOD'S WAKE

It's a reflection on New Orleans and the Gulf South, one year after the Flood of '05. We've got an interview and live performance from historic Congo Square with New Orleans native and trumpeter Wynton Marsalis. Visit with the men repairing the Superdome. And Louisiana voices, including Irma Thomas, Allen Toussaint, and David and Michael Doucet recall their storm experiences. The words and music of post-deluge New Orleans, one year after the storm.

JELLY ROLL MORTON

New Orleans pianist, composer, raconteur and the self-proclaimed "inventor of jazz" is featured through original Library of Congress music and oral history sessions, and interviews with jazz scholar Dan Morgenstern. The pervasive influence of Morton's music includes the swing-era sounds of Benny Goodman to recent revivals by Dr. Michel White and Wynton Marsalis.
