-Music can save the soul of the city, but can the musicians save themselves?

“If the musicians ain’t got a chance to live, then what chance has the music got?” Dr John. ‘One Note at a Time’, a cautionary tale about US healthcare, is timely for the 300th year anniversary of the founding of New Orleans in 2018. This is a beautifully crafted, feature documentary, rich with colorful characters. It is set in the iconic musical backdrop of New Orleans, where in 2005 the music stopped…when one of the most deadly and destructive hurricanes in American history struck. The flood defenses failed, flooding the Crescent City for weeks. Lives were lost and lives were shattered. Many displaced musicians felt compelled to return to the chaos and bleak confusion to play again. This is the story of some who made it back, told in their own words, with those who fought alongside to resuscitate the music scene; In particular the founders of The New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic, a unique medical facility with the motto… ‘Keeping the music Alive’. ABOUT THE PRODUCTION ‘One Note at a Time’ was filmed over four years. It pays homage to the musicians who courageously returned to their hometown of New Orleans after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. Compelled to come back and determined to resuscitate the music scene, this is their story, told in their own words. It is also the story of the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic that evolved into the New Orleans Musicians’ Assistance Fund, whose mission is to keep New Orleans’ culture ALIVE by providing social services and outreach.

In light of Dr John's passing, it seems pertinent to note the collection of unique live tracks in this film. For many of the musicians in the film this was amongst their final interviews,
