After the Storm VII: New Years

   
 

December 27th, 2006 ~ We look back at the year 2005 that brought catastrophe to the Gulf Coast region, and look forward to the rebuilding and rejuvenation of the area through music, including Duke Ellington's great New Orleans Suite. Trumpeter Irvin Mayfield joins us to narrate a recent live performance of his new composition "All the Saints" with the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra from Christ Church in New Orleans. Also, traditional jazz clarinetist Dr. Michael White ruminates on the loss of musical collections, from a King Oliver clarinet to Jelly Roll Morton sheet music, and carrying on post-Katrina. And a montage of voices from victims of Hurricane Rita in French southwest Louisiana.
