Wasn't Sonny playing an Electro at his new gig a couple of episodes ago?
Yep, well spotted!
It didn't sound too great, although that may have been because he was a little 'rusty' after working on the fishing boats. Still, a big improvement over that horrible keyboard he used to tote around with Annie!
I am seriously falling in love with New Orleans because of this show. I have always had a little something for the state of Louisiana (nothing is more beautiful to my ears than my native language spoken with the beautiful cajun accent and I could (and did) listen for hours to Zachary Richard singing about this part of the world. But since I started watching Treme, this curiosity and fondness slowly turned into a real love and immense desire to be able to see this city and live in it for a while before I die, walking behind a second line and be for a few hours part of this wonderful community who gave birth to the music I so deeply love
In the beginner section of this forum, there is a post called "you know you are a piano addict when...". I think "Treme" is also very addictive and recently I added a couple of New Orleans radio station to my favorite list on my iRadio and it seems that, at least spiritually, I kind of moved to Treme I hope that they won't cancel the show on us too fast, it would really feels to me like loosing a bunch of friends and I would really miss them
Kawai James, this is a really sad news Why do they always cancel the good shows. I know it's always better they get canceled before they get "worn out" but in my opinion, this was in no risk to happen to "Treme" any time soon Pelf, thank you very much, this will be very useful to better understand the show
Jean-Luc, I don't believe HBO are cancelling the show. Actually, I seem to recall reading somewhere that David Simon originally envisaged the programme to have four seasons (i.e. three years after Katrina).
Just an amazing episode. Favorite scenes: Annie and her band tracking "This City"; and that beautiful, quiet moment when Toni shows up at Terry's FEMA trailer with a Pilsner Urquell peace offering. Great music, great writing, great acting!
Same here, that's why I enjoy so much when the music bring me back to it. I also very much recommend an album by Allen Toussaint called "The Bright Mississipi", you just can't listen to it without having pictures of "Treme" flashing back in your mind Lol, I guess we are now addicted and we need our "musical metadone" to hold on until next year (or until we put a blue-ray in the player)
James, thanks a lot for bringing this subject on this forum. Honestly speaking Treme was a starter for me to listen more to Jazz or Jazz-like music -- as to me, Jazz looks like an ocean of music of various kinds. Thanks! :-) Karel
