Today on WFPK

6-8 am: American Routes
MAKING NEW ORLEANS MUSIC
It’s a two-hour walk through streets of the city as we dive into two great eras of New Orleans music. First, it’s the 1940s and 50s R&B hit factory with studio man Cosimo Matassa, producer, arranger, trumpet player Dave Bartholomew who passed away recently, drummer Earl Palmer and more. We also chat with The Meters—Art Neville, George Porter, Leo Nocentelli and Zigaboo Modeliste—and we get to the bottom of the bottom, find out what’s in the pocket and get a definition of funk from the four men who continue to dish it out.
