No close ups, of course, but the episode also included Kermit Ruffins, Trombone Shorty and many others. If you are not watching Treme, you are missing out. The spirit of music is the main character.


I agree, one of the best shows ever about the life of musicians and culture. I really wish they would do a series or movie about Hawaiian musicians and culture like that.

For me, personally, it's Willie Weeks #1 and GPJ #1a. The mans a beast and I unabashedly stole every riff and note I could figure out as a kid from him.
