A Cultural Document

David Simon’s Treme finishes its fourth and final season this Sunday, December 29th. The show has spent the last several years painting a complex portrait of post-Katrina New Orleans, while exploring the intersection of history, tradition and the modern challenges of playing music in a city that loves music but can’t pay for it — and through that, viewers were treated to the city’s indigenous sound. "I just know that Treme broke ground when it comes to music and film on television," says Wendell Pierce, who plays local musician Antoine Batiste on the show. "I think it is a cultural document, a musical document that people will be able to go back — years from now."  In celebrating the show's final send off, Pierce spoke with Rolling Stone and shared some of his favorite musical memories from the series.
