After six years in the making, "The Whole Gritty City" is an up-close look at New Orleans youth in city marching bands - their lives in school and music class, at home, and in preparation for Mardi Gras.

The film focuses on three area marching bands, The Roots of Music's Crusaders, and the bands at L.E. Rabouin and O. Perry Walker high schools.

Hosted by CBS News Cultural Correspondent and hometown jazz hero, Wynton Marsalis, this documentary stresses the power of music and how it can not only enhance lives, but save lives too.
