Making New Orleans Music

   
 

July 18th, 2007 ~ It's a two-hour walk through streets of the city as we dive into two great eras of New Orleans music. First, it's the 1940s and 50s R&B hit factory with studio man Cosimo Matassa; producer, arranger, trumpet player Dave Bartholomew; drummer Earl Palmer and more. There's also a chat with The Meters--Art Neville, George Porter, Leo Nocentelli and Zigaboo Modeliste--in which we get to the bottom of the bottom, find out what's in the pocket and get a definition of funk from the four men who continue to dish it out.
