New Orleans jazz trumpeter Kermit Ruffins will be appearing in a new HBO series Tremé that was just greenlit by the network. The pilot was written by The Wire creator David Simon and co-creator Eric Overmyer, so we’re hoping for great things from this show that will follow the characters through post-Hurricane Katrina life in the Big Easy. Ruffins has also kept busy with a new album, Livin’ a Tremé Life that came out last month and the incessant live gigs he plays. Here are two tracks from the new album, “Treme Mardi Gras” and Ruffin’s version of Allen Toussaint’s “Holy Cow”.
