From unique musical heritage to the devastation of Hurricane Katrina – a reflection on New Orleans, the city, its soundtrack, its influence and its resilience.
Goddess of soul Irma Thomas is among those presenter Alan Yentob meets as he ponders the legends (Dr John, Louis Armstrong, etc) who have hailed from New Orleans and the rich variety of musical forms pioneered and perfected there. Jools Holland, Paul McCartney and Elvis Costello are among those to offer perspectives from this side of the Atlantic.
