Music Of Treme News Recap – June 14, 2010

Episode 9 List of Songs is up.

Last week there were a ton of pictures of John Goodman and his weight loss and last night  Creighton (supposedly) took a dive off the Algiers Ferry.  Very interesting…..

  • Treme explained: ‘Wish Someone Would Care’ ” (
  • “Did he really jump? Do you really care?” (LA Times)
  • “couldn’t help but groan during Creighton’s labored speech about there not being closure in the real world” (Dark Brown Waffles)
  • “for being the guy to whom a Hubig’s fried pie was an act of communion” (TIME)
  • “She is giving up on New Orleans, but she makes a good case that New Orleans gave up on her” (Watching Treme)
  • “Rest in peace, Creigh; we shall miss you dearly” (TV Squad)
  • “New Orleans, I love you, but you’re bringing me down” (HitFix)
  • “Davis proves just as committed to staying put and living well” (AV Club)
  • Ladonna and Antoine: “It’s gonna be wrong for us forever” (New York Magazine)
  • “Will the chief punch a cop? Kill somebody with a pipe? Or take the high road, like Tootie did, and preside with willful benevolence.” (Sound Of Treme)

I chose Al Hirt as the artist for “Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans”  in Episode 9 even though it has been recorded by many.  In the video below, we go back to 1962 to a great black and white video of him performing  “I Love Paris” and “When The Saints Go Marchin’ In”.

The 2nd video is quite the collection of musicians performing “Bag’s Groove” that includes Al, Sarah Vaughan, Don Cherry, Chuck Mangione, Maynard Ferguson, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter and Billy Higgins.  Very nice….
