Preservation Hall Jazz Band


Preservation Hall has been a New Orleans institution for more than 50 years, but the trad-jazz ambassadors have only recently released their first collection of new material, That’s It! Produced by the PHJB’s Ben Jaffe and Jim James of My Morning Jacket, the new material does not reinvent the New Orleans shuffle, though it does include new tunes that sound like old ones. It’s unclear under how these songs fit into the club’s policy of “traditional requests” for $2, “others” for $5, and “The Saints” for $10, but rest assured that their greatest hit will be performed for no additional cost.
