Editorial Reviews

The complete roster of artists includes: Louis Armstrong, Andrew Bird, Terence Blanchard, Pete Seeger, Dr. John, Blind Boys of Alabama, Brandi Carlile, Cory Chisel, Ani DiFranco, Steve Earle, Merle Haggard, Richie Havens, Jason Isbell, Jim James, Angelique Kidjo, Amy LaVere, Anita Briem, Del McCoury, Buddy Miller, Paolo Nutini, and Tom Waits.

Over the last year, more than 20 of American music s most exciting artists traveled to Preservation Hall in New Orleans to collaborate with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band on classic New Orleans repertoire. The end result is a timeless and joyous celebration of New Orleans music. Proceeds from the sale of the project will benefit Preservation Hall and The Preservation Hall Music Outreach Program. The album is set for release on Fat Tuesday, February 16, 2010 in standard CD, deluxe edition and double-LP collectible formats.
Preservation Hall, located in the French Quarter just three blocks from the Mississippi River, remains the intimate venue it originally was when it opened in 1961 as a performance space dedicated to honoring, celebrating and perpetuating New Orleans jazz. Originally erected as a Spanish Tavern in the 1750s, Preservation Hall is a modest French Quarter structure. The building has no running water or air conditioning, and the only seating accommodations are six benches and a few cushions strewn about the worn wooden floor. Its raw and weather-beaten exterior remains unpainted.
A half-century later, Preservation Hall continues to ensure the cultural legacy and the future of this beautiful tradition by allowing young and old to collaborate together.
In the spirit of New Orleans, legendary and emerging artists donated their time to travel to New Orleans to record this special compilation album benefiting Preservation Hall and the Preservation Hall Music Outreach Program.

Note: The bonus disc is in a separate cardboard sleeve that is attached to the back side of the regular CD case.

5.0 out of 5 stars Joyful, Important, American Music February 20, 2010
By Joseph
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I could easily run out of superlatives describing the latest effort from the remarkable Preservation Hall Jazz Band. However, if you're reading this review then chances are you're about to pull the trigger and buy the album. Please do. You will not be disappointed. The song choices (and special guests) are outstanding, and the cause it benefits will ensure that this genre of music will be around for years to come. Special note for Tom Waits fans (like myself): Tom clearly loves New Orleans music. You can tell he's having fun on this one.

This 2 Disc Album Cd was released on Fat Tuesday, February 16, 2010. Fat Tuesday is "Mardi Gras Day" in New Orleans, its a day of celebration & fun. And this year, it was also a time to celebrate the New Orleans Saints 1st Ever Victory, in the Superbowl. So this Cd was released on a very significant day, in New Orleans History. The music in this CD just adds to the celebration!!!

Now the CD, over the course of the last year or so, a wide variety of diverse musicians traveled to The Preservation Hall in New Orleans to collaborate, and record with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, performing "Classic" New Orleans Jazz & related songs. Somehow, through modern technology, they even included the late, legendary Jazz Musician, Louis Armstrong on the song "Rocking Chair". The result of all of this, is a "GREAT" CD CELEBRATING THE WONDERFUL MUSIC, OF THE CITY OF NEW ORLEANS!!! I'M VERY CONFIDENT, YOU WILL ENJOY IT, VERY MUCH!!! IT'S FULL OF GREAT, WODERFUL, NEW ORLEANS MUSIC!!!

This deluxe version of this 2 Disc CD contains 25 songs, the track listing is included in the Amazon product description. There are 19 songs one Disc 1, and 6 songs on Disc 2.

The participating artists include: There are 25 songs, and these are the 25 collaborating artists on these songs: 1. Andrew Bird, 2.Paolo Nutini, 3.Tom Watts, 4.Yim Yames, 5.Del McCoury, 6.Ani DiFranco, 7.Pete Seeger & Tao Rodriquez-Seeger, 8.Jason Isabell, 9.Brandi Carlile, 10.Richie Havens, 11.Merle Haggard, 12.The Blind Boys of Alabama & Clint Maedgen, 13.Dr.John, 14.Louis Armstrong, 15.Amy LaVere, 16.Steve Earle, 17.Cory Chisel, 18.Buddy Miller, 19.Angelique Kidjo & Terence Blanchard.

5.0 out of 5 stars A reason to pay attention July 9, 2010
Format:Audio CD
By now, it should be obvious that this is not your father's Preservation Hall Jazz Band. Under Ben Jaffe's leadership, it has become something more post-modern and conceptual. The name's the thing, even if the cast of players changes from session to session and track to track. It celebrates New Orleans and traditional jazz, but it does so broadly, reaching beyond the obvious canon for lesser known songs or modern songs that owe the city's musical past a debt. The implication is that the band and the songs have something to say today, even if it takes a King Britt remix or two to make that point obvious.

Preservation continues in that vein, this time with guest artists singing with the Hall Band. It's easy to imagine Tom Waits, Del McCoury, Andrew Bird and Richie Havens forcing the band to a subordinate position by the strength of their musical personalities, but like Galactic's last two albums, the sound and concept of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band dominate, and the guests come off as exactly that. The interplay, though, highlights the rightness of Jaffe's central premise. The sound of the band with the rotating roster of singers gives the album a theatrical dimension as they step up one-byone and enter a musical context that feels staged somewhere between antiquity and modernity.

Those who look to the Hall Band for great ensemble playing will find hot moments--the break in "Freight Train," sung by an almost unrecognizable Ani DiFranco comes to mind--but for the most part, Preservation presents the band as an inventive group that swings like mad while pulling folk, blues, Western Swing and 20th Century popular song into a New Orleans idiom.

5.0 out of 5 stars omg! It opened my eyes March 1, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I have always prided myself as being an "eclectic" especially when it comes to music. Jazz, however has never been in any of my playlists....ever. Unitl now. I heard this on NPR in a music interview with the band founder. It simply stopped me in my tracks! Not to metion the impact it had on my 3 year old son, captive in his carseat behind me. I could not wait to come home and find where I could purchase it. The deal was truly sealed when I heard Angelique Kidjo perform "La Vie En Rose" This is a truly hearfelt thanks to some amazing musicians and the love they have for this music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dixeland+ July 1, 2010
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I've always loved Dixieland music - it's always so happy and uplifting. At first I was a little skeptical of the pairing of the PHJB with popular artists -- but it really works. Tom Waits, for example, seems perfectly at home with the sound, tempo, and mood. (And this was a particularly great value when it was offered for $5 a month or two ago! :-))

Most of what I wanted to say is in my title. A GREAT effort by all involved in the project. So many reasons to purchase it but none more than Ol' Satchmo, Richie Havens murdering "Trouble In Mind" and my discovery of relative newcomer Brandi Carlile. Her vocals have the otherworldly qualities of Cass Eliot and Karen Carpenter. BUY IT and if you don't, make a donation anyway to preserve the sound of America's soul.
