"Nawlins"...the Crescent City, where the local music and cuisine share a lot in common: both are spicy, fused with a multicultural mix of ingredients, and one taste only makes you hunger for more. Host Jacob Edgar arrives during the build-up to Mardi Gras. His musical journey moves from the classic jazz at Preservation Hall to the sounds of trumpeter Irvin Mayfield at his club on Bourbon Street. Virtuoso Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews treats Edgar to a searing demonstration of his talents, followed by an intimate get-together with crooner Jeremy Davenport. Cameras capture a scorching jam with Cyril Neville and Galactic at the famed Tiptitina's and local legend Kermit Ruffins at his annual Mardi Gras morning barbeque party.
