'Treme' sells music videos on iTunes, reminds us about Juvenile

treme-juvenile.jpg12 years after he invited the world to "Back That Azz Up," Louisiana rapper Juvenile dropped by the Season 2 premiere of "Treme" for a performance with Galactic and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band.

Looking on from the mezzanine, Davis' ( Steve Zahn) explained to Annie ( Lucia Micarelli) that the gumbo-like status of New Orleans music permits even someone like her to join in on the fun. And though we question the pairing of Juvenile and the fiddle, we'll keep an open mind.

"Treme" as just as much about the music as it is anything else, so it makes sense that HBO would drive that point home in its promotion of Season 2. The network ( via USA Today) will post full music videos from the episodes on iTunes every Monday at $1.49 a pop. Galactic's "From the Corner to the Block" is the first tune to get the treatment, and upcoming weeks will see the release of similar clips from John Hiatt, Shawn Colvin, and the Hot 8 Brass Band.

We appreciate the show's continued effort to highlight the varied sounds of New Orleans -- blasts from the past included.
