Thes 90-minute conversations were led by writer Larry Blumenfeld, who covers jazz regularly for The Wall Street Journal, writes the “Blu Notes” blog, and who has written extensively about New Orleans since the flood. He and Overmyer previewed excerpts from upcoming episodes, reflect on the fictional HBO show’s four-year arc and discuss its relationship to the issues surrounding jazz culture and real life in New Orleans.
