Preservation Hall Jazz Band


Not unlike Menudo, the members of this venerable institution devoted to traditional New Orleans jazz since 1961 have been replaced as they’ve “aged out” over the years. Creative director Ben Jaffe is the tuba-playing son of co-founders Allan and Sandra Jaffe. The current crop is the most adventurous yet, especially on this year’s Jim James-produced That’s It!, wherein they deliver gloriously corn-free Nawlins originals played with wit, depth, and panache.
