The recent history of New Orleans is fraught with tragedy and triumph. Both are reflected in the city's vibrant, idiosyncratic music community. In Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Keith Spera's intimately reported Groove Interrupted, a diverse group of musicians, promoters, and local legends reckon with life before and after the flood. From Aaron Neville's return to bury his wife of fifty years to the rescue of Fats Domino and Alex Chilton by helicopter during the storm and Platinum-selling rapper Mystikal's attempt to rekindle his career after six years in prison, Spera scores of the city in all of its joyful and elegiac tones. Groove Interrupted vividly renders the unbreakable spirit of New Orleans and its music, in spite of Katrina's interruption.
