More on Dinerral Shavers

The WWOZ Street Talk blog has a nice audio piece about Hot 8 snare drummer Dinerral Shavers, whose tragic death was noted here recently. Producer/correspondent Matt Sakakeeny interviews some of the students Shavers worked with at L.E. Rabouin High School, where he got a music program going, and to others who knew his work. One good piece of news is that others have stepped din to work with the young musicians, and the high school band is expected to be a presence during Carnival this year. It's worth a listen.
