treme in ny, jazz in june

If you're in NY this summer, you've got plenty of chances to hear New Orleans music that, as you await next season, offers insights into the sight, sounds, and characters of HBO "Treme." You can find my piece in today's Wall Street Journal with something of a roadmap to that effect. And something I wrote for the current issue of the Village Voice, looking back on June's wave jazz in Manhattan, has a point of connection, in the musical communion of two clarinetists--avant-gardist Perry Robinson and New Orleans traditionalist Michael White.
