Black Cab Sessions USA
Arts Documentary hosted by Chris Pattinson, published by Channel 4 in 2011 - English narration
One Song. One Take. One Cab. Black Cab Sessions started in 2007 to provide audiences with an alternative to glossy promos, something that brought them closer to the magic and intimacy of a live performance. A mobile recording studio on wheels, complete with a constantly surprising and shifting vista.
Featuring musical legends such as Jack White, Mumford and Sons, the Roots and Brian Wilson and breaking the careers of up and comers like Lianne Le Havas and Michael Kiwanuka, the series captured the imagination of music lovers around the world for the original way it presented music.
With over 200 sessions and over 40 million organic online views, the meter is still running.

2) New Orleans
Hurricane Katrina was badly destroying New Orleans in 2005 and took nearly 2,000 lives. However, things are improving by the spirit of communion and the healing power of music. We meet several musicians of Treme series, including singer John Boutten, who performs at the back of a cab with guitarist Paul Sanchez. Blues singer John Thomas King takes us to his home destroyed by Katrina and sings a whiskey song. Also included is Trombone Short, his mentor Wolf, the Washboard Chaz, and the famous Rebirth Brazz Band and its member trumpeter Kermit Ruffins. Clarinetist Dr. Michael White gives a sample of his skills. We also learn about the Mardi Gras Indians and see what is popular hip hop bounce where bums spin wildly. DJ Jubilee and bounce star Big Freedia tell more.
