DIRTY DOZEN BRASS BAND: WHAT'S GOIN' ON
To commemorate the one year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band pays tribute to its New Orleans home by reinterpreting Marvin Gaye's classic album, "What's Goin' On." The members of DDBB perform live and discuss the relavance of Gaye's message to the people of New Orleans - both before and after the hurricane. Produced by Tres Hombres (Herbie Hancock - Imagine the Possibilities; Chuck Berry - Hail Hail Rock & Roll).
One-hour special salutes jazz icon Fats Waller with music from throughout his tragically short career. The program also features commentary from musicians, historians, friends and family members about his life and the impact he made on both jazz and pop music.
