The second set of the program begins with Jon Cleary's "Frenchmen Street Blues" from the soundtrack to "Treme: Music from the HBO Original Series Season 2".  Jimmy Witherspoon and a classic Red Garland song "Skinny's Blues" from a 1961 session at Van Gelder's studio complete the set.

A little taste of Miles Davis, "Basin Street Blues" and "Black Coffee" from Sarah Vaughan are heard in the beginning of the last set.  You'll also hear from Harry Connick, Jr and from Chicago, the great Ken Nordine brings this blues program to an end.
