I have a few of the PHJB's releases but this is easily the most definitive and also boasts great sound. Ben Jaffe, the current Creative Director cherry picks 58 tracks of their best recorded work over the past 50 years. If you have even a passing interest in New Orleans traditional music, you will find much to enjoy. If your interests run deeper, you may never take this out of rotation. When in New Orleans, do not pass up a visit to the Hall for one of their sets, it really lets you know, you could be nowhere else in the world, the essence of that city.

Thoroughly enjoyed this set. I would recommend it to all who enjoy New Orleans jazz. If you don't know the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, don't be bashful about getting to know them through this CD set. It is well worth the price!

My husband is a diehard New Orleans fan and loves any music coming from the region. When this went on sale while we were watching an episode of Treme, it was meant to be. I bought this as a Christmas gift and it was his favorite! I personally have not listened to the CD's but based on his reaction, this is a must for any fan of Preservation Hall!

This is toe-tapping joy. There are 4 discs in the set, 52 tunes to make anyone smile - I sure am. The music includes pieces recorded years ago by musicians who have since passed on to Glory, and on up to more current times. The aim of Preservation Hall is to ensure that this wonderful sound doesn't disappear. There are traditional tunes such as St. James Infirmary, Amen, When the Saints Go Marching In . . and some newer pieces that are faithful to the form. If this doesn't put a big grin on your face, set you to stomping your feet, and get to shakin' that thing, I'd sure be surprised.

As a fan of traditional jazz I always enjoyed Preservation Hall Albums and had visited the benches at the Hall several times. This collection contains many numbers made after the demise of greats like the Humphreys, Pierce, Barrett, Kimball, Miller, Robinson and their peers. As it covers 50 years, the more modern numbers are mixed in on each disc. To me they lack the drive and character present earlier and detract from a true New Orleans dixieland experience. I would have enjoyed the 4 disc series had it been arranged chronologically.
