You're accessing this slice of literary goodness for free because we believe anyone and everyone should be able to access the best in fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and art. And because we don't ask our readers to pay for Guernica, we do—for web hosting, server costs, and the other incidentals necessary to keep Guernica up and running, and, most importantly, open and available to as many people as possible, around the world.
If like us you believe in a widely accessible Guernica, consider supporting the magazine with a tax deductible donation or by subscribing. We'll only be asking for two weeks, three times a year—asking for support from readers like you on your own terms: our all-volunteer staff gives to Guernica out of love, and we extend that friendship to you. If you love Guernica, click to help make sure an ever-growing community can continue to read, react, and participate. Each month, more than 100,000 unique readers visit guernicamag.com—even a small amount, a couple of dollars, from just half of those visitors would sustain us for many, many moons.
Our infinite thanks,
The Guernica Team
Rec Room: Katherine Dykstra: New Orleans Jazz
April 21, 2010
If you’re watching Treme, Wire-creator David Simon’s latest, about New Orleans post-Katrina (which I highly recommend along with my colleague, David Xia), you’ll want to add some of that big brass band sound—in many ways the heartbeat of the show, to your library.
Here are five that make an appearance in the first two episodes:
Kermit Ruffins: Live at Vaughan’s
Rebirth Brass Band: Do Whatcha Wanna
Coco Robicheaux: Spiritland
Louis Prima: Buona Sera
Bio: Katherine Dykstra is the nonfiction editor at Guernica. Her interview with author and Pulitzer Prize-winner Sheryl WuDunn appeared in Guernica’s January 15th issue. Read her last recommendation of the collection of short stories Nothing Right “here”:http://www.guernicamag.com/blog/1651/rec_room_katherine_dykstra_not/.
