The soundtrack album includes 19 tracks featuring music heard throughout the groundbreaking series over the course of its first season, offering a cross-section of New Orleans-bred music including rhythm and blues, soul, jazz, rock and roll, funk, folk and country that reflects the diversity of the city’s musical tradition.
Artists heard on the soundtrack -- and seen in the series -- include John Boutté whose “Treme Song” is the series’ theme. The Rebirth Brass Band’s “Feel Like Funkin’ It Up” reflects the melding of the city’s brass band tradition with a contemporary funk cadence that exemplifies the musical melting post that is New Orleans. Steve Zahn who plays DJ/musician Davis McAlary in the series is heard performing “Shame, Shame, Shame” The album includes Dr. John’s “Indian Red,” as well as “Time Is On My Side” by Irma Thomas and Allen Toussaint plus Steve Earle’s “This City” and much more music that evokes the tenor of the series and the spirit of New Orleans.
From David Simon and Eric Overmyer (both of The Wire®), Treme follows musicians, chefs, Mardi Gras Indians and ordinary New Orleanians as they try to rebuild their lives, their homes and their unique culture in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The acclaimed show has been renewed for a second season which will air in 2011.
