A funeral and a rally
10 June 2011 | by See all my reviews

The episode opens on a funeral at a church where Dinerral Shavers, the slain drummer from The Hot 8 Brass Band, rests in his coffin. His sister is talking about his life. She feels an incredible emptiness in her life, as well as a void that will be hard to replace. It is a charged moment for the congregation, mostly of musicians that came to pay tribute to their dead brother.

The city and its people keep on going through their lives, now changed forever. For Antoine Baptiste, he is now in charge of the school band, but as we see him arrive, the kids under his wing are restless; they have no intention of being quiet. Antoine and his band are doing what they do best, they are playing better all the time. We watch Wanda Rouzan performing and getting the room swaying to her songs. We also see Sonny playing his guitar, a bit more confident, perhaps.

Sofia Bernette is having a difficult time adjusting to the fact her father is gone. She has been acting erratic and neglecting her job. Sofia shows courage when she boards the same ferry where her late father was last seen before his disappearance. Working as an intern for Oliver Thomas is not as exciting as she might have thought. Mr. Thomas, noticing her attitude, invites her to go with him to the court. To her surprise, her mother Toni is arguing a case in front of the judge. Sofia appears to be pleasantly surprised of that experience.

Jeanette is seen in Manhattan talking to Tom Colicchio at Craft, one of his restaurants. He brings out the fact of how she threw the Sazerac to Aland Richman at Brulard's. The chef has spoken on her behalf to one of the top chefs in the business, none other than Eric Ripert, from Le Bernadin, one of the top restaurants in the city. Going for an interview with Ripert, and figuring the worst, she is told she is hired. To celebrate, Jeanette goes to the Blue Note where she catches Delmont Lambreaux doing a set. Later, she is seen with Delmont and his girlfriend, sharing a drink.

Davis is still struggling to make a go of his new album he has put together. Having his aunt Mimi to back him, he feels great. We watch him ordering liquor that he wants to send to Jeanette in New York. The bottles are the ingredients for a Sazerac, the same drink which made his former girlfriend famous among the restaurant people. Meeting with one of his prospective artists prove to be elusive at best, but having brought Mimi along, pays off in surprising ways.

The amazing finale shows people from all walks of life in New Orleans marching through the streets. The blocking of the different groups marching and coming together is perfectly orchestrated.

Another excellent episode of "Treme". Directed by Rob Bailey and written by Mari Kornhauser and David Simon, this is television at its best. Fans of the series would do themselves a favor by reading the amazing blog created by Edward Copland, a man that analyzes the series with accuracy and style. In fact, one could almost encourage the creators of the series to ask this man to contribute to an episode in the not too distant future.

The acting is one of the best ensembles working in series, bar none. It is one of the best things playing these days.
