A slight shift of cultural medium has led me to blog about the new HBO series TREME which premiered this past Sunday.  The show follows the post Katrina recovery of one of New Orleans oldest neighborhoods, Treme, a true melting pot of Black and creole music and culture.  The music is fantastic and the story is intriguing after the first episode.  Watch the trailer below (excuse the language).  Also, I posted a song by Louis Prima below the trailer to give you a good taste of the New-Orleans fusion jazz that is rampant in the show.  In the words of Miley Cyrus, it has me "swinging my hips like yeah."  Enjoy.
