The past and promise of American music.
At a moment when musical streams cross with unprecedented frequency, it’s crucial to remember that New Orleans has long been the point at which sounds and cultures from around the world converge, mingle, and resurface, transformed by the Crescent City’s inimitable spirit and joie de vivre. No band embodies that idea more vividly than the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, which has held the torch of New Orleans music aloft for more than 50 years while carrying it enthusiastically forward as a reminder that the history they were founded to preserve is a vibrantly living one.
At their beginning, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band broke racial boundaries to present the living legends of New Orleans music, who were themselves living links to the origins of jazz. Today, with a band whose ages range nearly 60 years, the mission remains the same: to pass on the jazz traditions of New Orleans while continually revitalizing them with new blood and fresh ideas.
