Melding the rhythms of the city with diverse cultural influences, New Orleans epitomized the evolution of jazz as home to Fats Domino, Louis Armstrong, Harry Connick, Jr., Little Richard, Juvenile, Aaron Neville and many others. Dave Grohl chats with Dr. John, Allen Toussaint, Cyril Neville and Trombone Shorty (who first played onstage at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival when he was just four years old) about New Orleans' unique history, "jazz funerals," Mardi Gras Indians and the effects of Hurricane Katrina. Elsewhere, Dave bonds with Ben Jaffe, scion of a famous jazz family and leader of the legendary Preservation Hall Jazz Band, before recording the latest Foo Fighters song at the historic French Quarter venue.
