Editorial Reviews

Vinyl LP pressing. 2013 album from the New Orleans Jazz legends, the first album of all original material in the band's 50 year history. Preservation Hall Jazz Band and its music continue to evolve as they embrace tradition and history while inspiring a new generation. Preservation Hall Jazz Band and My Morning Jacket first met a few years ago and also performed together on tour and in New Orleans. As their support for each other has grown, Jim James (My Morning Jacket) decided to take on the role as co-producer with Ben Jaffe on what is the first release of original music from Preservation Hall Jazz Band. With songs co-written with Dan Wilson, Chris Stapleton and the legendary Paul Williams, these new recordings have a fresh approach but still capture the classic feel of what has kept Preservation Hall Jazz Band relevant over the past 50 years.

It may be strange to say a band is on the rise 50 years into their career, but in the case of Preservation Hall Jazz Band the evidence is undeniable. In the past year they've been venerated at major North American music festivals, collaborated with guest stars as wide ranging as The Del McCoury Band and Steve Earle, and now they release the first album of original material in the band's history, That's It!. Creative director David Jaffe says it's an effort by the band's current members to leave their mark on the modern musical landscape, as the great New Orleans jazz musicians of the past did in their day.

They have some well renowned friends to help them do it. This is not their first time working with Jim James of My Morning Jacket: they collaborated on "St. James Infirmary Part 1" on last year's St. Peter & 57th Street. This time he brings his expertise to the producer's booth, using his laser focused attention to detail to fine tune the band's sound. There are also a slew of well known songwriters at work on That's It! Most notable is Paul Williams, best known for a string of hits beginning in the 1970s and most recently involved with writing on singing on Daft Punk's Random Access Memories.

Many of the songs are pretty straightforward in terms of tone and theme, usually based upon some story of love or loss, or some facet of New Orleans. Yet it's the presentation of the message that determines the success or failure of a recording, and PHJB's composition most certainly has some meat on its bones."I Think I Love You" provides some great clarinet and offers a fantastic shuffling beat sure to get your hips twisting. Meanwhile, "Dear Lord (Give Me the Strength)" triumphantly fuses jazz and gospel to create a rapture inducing performance.

That's It!

Fifty years ago, when Alan and Sandra Jaffe created the legendary space in New Orleans French Quarter known as "Preservation Hall" to present nightly concerts by traditional NOLA jazz musicians (including Sweet Emma and George Lewis) they were preserving the older musicians playing traditional jazz. But through the years the band - crowned the Preservation Hall Jazz Band - inevitably lost its aging members (and the Allan Jaffe's passed on too). It took the next generation of the Jaffe family, multi-instrumentalist (but primarily tuba player) Ben Jaffe to move the band forward into the 21st century, while not forgetting the "heritage" from which the original band evolved. Now 41 years old, Jaffe first formed a record company to release the band's music, and later moved on to a deal with Sony's legacy label (which this newest release stems from). He replaced some of the members who left because of health with a younger generation who grew up in NOLA and the band members now range from their 30s to their 80s). Jaffe formed collaborations with other musicians such as Del McCoury, Trombone Shorty, and even Jim James of the band My Morning Jacket. The CD of their 50th Anniversary Concert at Carnegie Hall in January 2012 (which I was fortunate to attend) is out on CD and highly recommended.

But on to this CD - the first album by the PHJB - of NEW compositions. With one exception, the 11songs were either composed, or co-written, by Jaffe. There's a mix of instrumentals and songs with vocals. Most of the numbers are in NOLA jazz style but just updated.

Credit is due to leader and tuba player Ben Jaffe, pianist Rickie Monie and drummer Joe Lastie Jr. for Preservation Hall releasing their first album of all-originals - "That's It" (2013) - after decades of playing and recording together. Jaffe and My Morning Jacket front-man Jim James succeeded in producing a concise, energetic collection steeped in the best traditions of the genre. The bass-end of the mix is very well defined, and contrasts beautifully to the stormy, brassy high-end, with Rickie Monie's piano captured in the middle. The result is a largely stompin' onslaught of upper and mid-tempo songs and instrumentals that mixes-up a gumbo of styles; from the fanfare title-track opener to the hazy Caribbean of "August Nights", the funeral dance of "Rattlin' Bones" and the gospel proclamation of "Dear Lord (Give Me the Strength)", "That's It!" allows exciting and easy access for new listeners to Preservation Hall Jazz Band.

Of curious note is the last third of the album, wherein Jaffe, who had at least a hand in writing almost everything on "That's It!", chose to end such a charged collection with three slower cuts: the gorgeous, ukulele-opening instrumental, "Yellow Moon"; the ponderous "The Darker It Gets"; and "Emmalena's Lullaby". This last track, an instrumental dirge of a piano solo, completely belies its title: so troublingly performed - discordant, rattling, indeed threatening - it shakes the listener out of the exuberance and joie de vivre heard throughout much of the album. One is left wondering, "Who is, or was, Emmalena, and what happened to her?" Answers are elusive, but maybe "Emmalena's Lullaby" is meant to remind listeners that life in New Orleans is more than the artifice and pomp, musically and otherwise, usually associated with the city.
