This week brings the 45th annual New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival to AXS TV, so I sat down with two big names in New Orleans music: Aaron Neville and Trombone Shorty, on tonight’s all new The Big Interview.
Aaron Neville‘s singing has been described as angelic and soulful, delicate and tormented – much like his personal story. I speak with the R&B legend on growing up in the Big Easy and the ups and downs of his nearly 50-year career.
You may not have heard of Trombone Shortyyet, but music industry insiders sure have. In our second half, I sit down with the rising star to discuss his eclectic musical inspirations, and how he personally carries on the music traditions of his hometown, New Orleans.
Join me for the final episode of The Big Interview of the season, tonight at 8 ET|5 PT. Plus, tune in for AXS TV’s exclusive broadcast from New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival – featuring Trombone Shorty – this Thursday through Sunday at 3 ET|12 PT.
We return next Tuesday at 8 ET|5PT with the special, “Dan Rather Presents: One Way Ticket To Nowhere”, an investigative report on America’s mental health crisis.
