watch bruce springsteen jazz fest 2006 katrina seeger sessions band new orleans

recently surprised the attendees at the Asbury Park Music and Film Festival by announcing that he would be releasing a concert film from the epic that The Boss delivered to a 2006 Fest pummeled, bruised and beaten by Hurricane Katrina just eight months prior.

This was the first time Bruce debuted his Seeger Sessions Bands, and there are many people that would argue that it was one of the most important sets ever delivered during the entire history of the festival.

And now the entire performance is now available to watch on YouTube.

Springsteen said he is planning to release a film of his April 30, 2006 performance with the Seeger Sessions Band at the New Orleans JazzFest. He considers that show, he said, to be among his Top 5, ever. He also said, about that rootsy Seeger Sessions project, “I wanna do that again sometime.”

He made good on that promise quite quick. Watch the entire show below.
