If you like the music, you might also enjoy the soundtrack from the movie Passion Fish.
Or perhaps the 4 CD box set from Louisiana Music Factory.
It's called Doctors, Professors, Kings & Queens : Big Ol' Box Of New Orleans. At $59.99 it's not cheap, but I'm sure it's worth it - the content list includes several of the names from the Big Easy tv series.
