Levee Acoustics:

Panorama Jazz Band “Serpent Maigre”


Produced by Hard Road Pictures
RunTime: 4:08

"Levee Acoustics" is an outdoor, acoustic music video series that highlights local musicians and physical landmarks in New Orleans. Each performance takes place somewhere atop the levee along the Mississippi River, honoring the significance of the waterway that snakes its way throughout New Orleans. The musicians choose their own material and location to play along the Mississippi, giving them the chance to tap into a location that is meaningful on a personal level, and offering their audience a more intimate look into sources of local inspiration.

Here, Panorama Jazz Band chose to perform at A Studio in the Woods, where band leader Ben Schenck married Ama Rogan, ASTW's Managing Director.
