Do you want to continue Treme Season 1? Now Treme Season 2 DVD has come out. It is the high tide of this show.
Treme takes its name from a neighborhood of New Orleans. It begins three months after Hurricane Katrina where the residents of New Orleans, including musicians, chefs, Mardi Gras Indians, and other New Orleanians try to rebuild their lives, their homes and their unique culture in the aftermath of the 2005 hurricane. Treme Season 2 picks up seven months later, with Toni struggling to raise her daughter after her husband's suicide, Janette finding life as a New York chef unfulfilling, Antoine still unsuccessful making ends meet as musician and LaDonna trying to maintain her life in New Orleans while her family carries on without her in Baton Rouge.
The soundtrack to Season 2 of Treme revels in the abounding riches of New Orleans music today. Here are brass bands, roots rock, traditional jazz, R&B and Cajun music, with a special nod to the city's piano tradition (with Henry Butler, Jon Cleary, Dr. John, Tom McDermott, David Torkanowsky each prominently featured). Also included is the once-in-a-lifetime collaboration between neo-funksters Galactic, the iconic Dirty Dozen Brass Band, and rapper Juvenile. Recorded live on the streets and in the clubs, New Orleans music does not get any more real than this.
Treme isn't based on a high concept, which probably has a lot to do with its inability to break into the mainstream. It's not "Sherlock Holmes in a Hospital" or "Cute Cheerleader Fights Vampires." It"s a rich ensemble piece depicting the fallout of Hurricane Katrina on the residents of New Orleans. If that makes you shrug your shoulders, then you are, perhaps a little ironically, the target audience. "Treme" illustrates the underseen hardships of a city crippled by great disaster. Lives were lost, homes demolished, and rescue attempts-even after the waters subsided-were slow to reach the suffering residents.
But it is brimming over with joy, embracing the city's rich culture, in particular its legendary musical community, as its heroes' means of coping with tragedy. The typical episode of Treme has enough great music to fill an entire soundtrack album, from such artists as Kermit Ruffins, Elvis Costello, Dr. John and many more, all of whom play themselves.
