^Now we're walking down Bourbon Street
^and it's pretty crazy, you can totally feel the energy
^and it's not even that late yet.
- One of the things that influence jazz
and influence Bourbon Street is Storyville,
the only area of legalized prostitution in America.
And it would open in the late 1800s
and it would stay open until 1917.
And then in 1919 the great French Opera house,
which had been built in the 1850s burned to the ground.
This was where social life of the entire city came together.
^- Right now we're going to the Music Legends Park
^for a little bit of live Jazz.

- I'm Steamboat Willie
and I play jazz for a living here in New Orleans.
We start at 6 o'clock every night and we play til midnight.
The music, the food, the people
are the essence of New Orleans.
New Orleans Jazz being the whole base
that holds everything up.
- New Orleans is the birthplace of Jazz.
So tonight has been such a treat to really see
the musicians doing what they do.
It's been just amazing.
All right, so they're just about to start another set
and I've got a lot more exploring to do so
let the good times roll!
