A Funky Love Riot: Jon Batiste & Stay Human

January 21, 2014

The traditional New Orleans jazz and funk music Jon Batiste was raised on provides a foundation for the more contemporary, soulful sound he makes with his band Stay Human. The musician and actor is a scion of what's been called "Louisiana's largest musical family." Touring their latest record, Social Music, Batiste and Stay Human play the Jazz Cafe at the Music Hall tonight.

He talked about picking up sounds from street musicians around the world, his role on HBO’s “Treme” and more with WDET’s Travis Wright.

The song heard in the interview is Jon Batiste & Stay Human's "Express Yourself (Say Yes)" from the album Social Music.
