Scarlet Johansen, Allan Tussaint, tons of traditional Dixieland complete with audience second line. This concert was over six hours long. I counted over 30 acts. I hope they also release
a soundtrack to go along with this if they haven't already.
You won't go wrong with this one. Any one of the above mentioned alone is worth the price of this DVD.
"From the Big Apple to the Big Easy - The Concert for New Orleans" is one of the most painless and relevant ways that you can show some support. My wife (who was born, raised, and lived in New Orleans for nearly four decades) watched this DVD with me, and commented, "This is the kind of stuff that will go down in history." I believe she is right about that. Figuratively, if not literally, we all lived though this, and how we react defines who we are. In the aftermath of Katrina, did you play a part? Maybe you wanted to, but with so much governmental ineptitude, didn't know where to turn, or who to trust. Perhaps the easiest way to cut directly to the heart of the matter would be to purchase this DVD.Read more ›
Many of the greats of New Orleans royalty are represented here, and their performances under the circumstances are really quite extraordinary. Allen Toussaint, The Neville Brothers, Irma Thomas, Buckwheat Zydeco, The Meters and The Dixie Cups are all part of this somber event, among others. In addition, friends of New Orleans and New York City based legends are also represented, with Jimmy Buffett, Elton John, Simon & Garfunkel, John Fogerty and others all pitching in to help raise money and awareness for this worthy cause.
The music on this 190 minute package is the sort of authentic raw and emotional stuff that you rarely get to experience. Do yourself a solid favor and get a copy of this DVD set. If you love New Orleans, you'll enjoy this concert immensely for years to come.
I would not purchase from this seller again and I would warn others from it as well.
