Tonight will be final episode of final season for often uneven but much enjoyed Treme. The series has rightly highlighted by David Simon's use of what I have long promoted as our true "national anthem." It was featured right in the first episode, and at length to close last season's finale. I'll expect to hear it in some form tonight.
But perhaps many of you have never actually seen Fess perform it, so here he is, with the Meters, no less.
