Hurricane Katrina wove a destructive path through New Orleans six years ago today. But the city's lifeblood — its music — remains strong. Host Michel Martin speaks with Keith Spera, author of Groove Interrupted: Loss, Renewal and the Music of New Orleans, and Irvin Mayfield, who played jazz at a city-wide benefit concert more than a month after the hurricane. At that point, he wasn't aware that he had lost his father in the storm.
