Death, Resurrection, and the Spirit of New Orleans: Jazz on the Tube Conversations

Despite the catastrophe caused by the 2005 failure of the New Orleans levee system, the biggest engineering failure in U.S. history, New Orleans was re-inhabited, rebuilt, and re-ignited with the spirit that makes it one of the world’s greatest cultural gems.

This book tells the story of how it happened with a special focus on the city’s musicians. They were among the first to return to the devastated city. The spirit they brought with them was the key to putting New Orleans back on its feet, and even dancing again – against all odds.
