This show goes in many musical directions with one set dedicated to the Katrina anniversary with some New Orleans sounds and Terrance Blanchards memorial to the hurricane and the disaster that ensued. A Tale Of God's Will (A Requiem For Katrina) is Terrance's touching tribute and one selection from an entire suite he composed dedicated to the events of 2005 in New Orleans. Beyond that set, we get a little funky with tracks from Stefon Harris and Liquid Soul, we go Indian with Mynta, go free-jazz with Sky Steele, and finish up with some latin jazz from Chucho Valdez. How's that for going all over the map.
