With Brian Morton and Alyn Shipton. For this final edition, a look at the contemporary jazz scene in New Orleans from the heart of the movement - the Snug Harbor Club - during Mardi Gras. Alyn Shipton introduces recordings of three groups of musicians. Jason, the youngest member of the Marsalis family, leads his quintet from the drums in a set of his own compositions; pianist Peter Martin appears with up-and-coming trumpeter Nicholas Payton; and talented young saxophonist Clarence Johnson III leads the third band.
