Radio Times
Review by:
Jack Seale

A gentle start to season three, setting the characters in motion without subjecting them to any great drama. DJ Davis (Steve Zahn) is working on his R&B opera and running a terrible walking tour of New Orleans jazz landmarks that have all been closed or put down. Feckless trombonist Antoine (Wendell Pierce) makes things worse when the police inexplicably shut down a memorial to a musician.

Most promisingly, civil-rights lawyer Toni (Melissa Leo) meets an investigative reporter who’s new in town and knows all the tricks. The show’s best traits – a vivid sense of place, cracking musical interludes – are in evidence, as is its main weakness, a lack of energy. This
is a long 80 minutes.
