Preservation Hall Jazz Band Turn To Jim James To Produce All-Original Album

September 13, 2013 - We are extremely happy to welcome the Preservation Hall Jazz band back to the World Cafe. Preservation Hall in New Orleans, the dirt-floor space off of Bourbon Street, was founded in 1961 as a place for the elders of New Orleans jazz to play nightly.
Today we will talk with Ben Jaffe. Like his father Alan who initially ran the space, he is a tuba player who guides the world renowned band today. Equally as at home on concert stages around the globe as in Pres Hall, the band joins us today with a set live from City Winery in NYC. Their new album That’s It! features band originals for the first time and was produced by My Morning Jacket’s Jim James.
