Preservation Hall Jazz Band is a New Orleans jazz band founded in New Orleans by tuba player Allan Jaffe in the early 1960s. The band derives its name from Preservation Hall in the French Quarter. In 2005, the Hall's doors were closed for a period of time due to Hurricane Katrina, but the band continued to tour. In the 1950s Larry Borenstein, an art dealer from Milwaukee, managed Preservation Hall in the French Quarter as an art gallery.

It features De De Pierce on cornet and vocal and his wife Billie on piano, one of the classic Preservation Hall iterations, and it just doesn’t get more New Orleans than this. De De howls out Creole lyrics about partying hard in the bayou, the band - including drummer Cie Frazier and clarinet wizard George Lewis - howls lyrics back at him while keeping up a steady hard-driving rhythm. In its 50 years as a working collective, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band has released only 19 albums. Actually, another one, the live St. Peter and 57th, comes out this week. Of these, more than half have dropped since 1994, shortly after the band was taken over by a 22-year-old tuba player and recent Oberlin graduate, Ben Jaffe. How this came to be is worth a little pause for a history lesson about the Preservation Hall, racial politics in New Orleans, and the realities of the music industry in today’s landscape.
