Can anyone recommend to me music similar to the album Delmond and his father were recording in HBO's Treme?

If you don't watch the show but are knowledgable about jazz, they recorded an album that mixed modern NY-style jazz with traditional NOLA-jazz, with Indian call-and-response vocals. It was fantastic! Is there stuff out in the real world I could purchase that sounds like this?

hopefully my description of it fits, I'm really not an expert on this type of music

This album features the song (or one nearly identical to it) that you see being recorded during the show, and, in fact, features much of the same personnel as the fictional version. The balance of the album is great.

I'm not sure if there is much else out there that is similar, but I'm not really a jazz expert either.

Wild Tchoupitoulas is another one you should definitely check out.

NOLA.com's Treme Explained is a great resource - that link goes into detail on the album hoboynow mentions (Indian Blues) and how it's related to the recording seen in the show.
