Hi Sandy: 

I did not see it all, returning from a gig, but I certainly did see Marsalis
with a great 8 piece band play "Dippermouth Blues".

I also saw/heard a lot of post trad jazz, as well as some really neat
conversation about the importance of the city of New Orleans to America.
This was the gist of the show, IMO, not just "Jazz".

Trad Jazz? Heck, I can hear that anywhere. ;-) VBG.
