Treme Soundtrack

Treme, named for the historic neighborhood where jazz was born, chronicles the rebuilding of a unique American culture where music plays an integral role in the city’s way of life.  Capturing the sounds of many of New Orleans’ extraordinary musicians and other artists, Geffen Records will release the original soundtrack TREME: MUSIC FROM THE HBO ORIGINAL SERIES, SEASON 1 on October 26th. 

The soundtrack album includes 19 tracks featuring music heard throughout the groundbreaking series over the course of its first season, offering a cross-section of New Orleans-bred music including rhythm and blues, soul, jazz, rock and roll, funk, folk and country that reflects the diversity of the city’s musical tradition.

Artists heard on the soundtrack — and seen in the series — include John Boutté whose “Treme Song” is the series’ theme. The Rebirth Brass Band’s “Feel Like Funkin’ It Up” reflects the melding of the city’s brass band tradition with a contemporary funk cadence that exemplifies the musical melting post that is New Orleans. Steve Zahn who plays DJ/musician Davis McAlary in the series is heard performing “Shame, Shame, Shame” The album includes Dr. John’s “Indian Red,” as well as “Time Is On My Side” by Irma Thomas and Allen Toussaint plus Steve Earle’s “This City” and much more music that evokes the tenor of the series and the spirit of New Orleans.
