Shake That ThingPreservation Hall Jazz Band
“Shake That Thing” by The Preservation Hall Jazz Band. This version swings hard, and is one of my favorite songs to dance to. It is also a great song to fill the floor.

Trouble In MindPreservation Hall Jazz Band;Richie Havens
The late Richie Havens, on “Trouble in Mind,” recorded with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band:
You can really believe that people who hurt really do hurt. Things are not always as bright sounding but it is forgiving sounding if you can accept it.
We were fortunate enough to speak to Richie Havens in 2010 about his tenure as a Greenwich Village portraitist, and his legendary opening act at Woodstock.
