Preservation Hall has a vibe you can cut with a knife . The minute i walked in there i felt at home . So much soul . The band having the time of their lives , and taking the audience along for the ride . Its was one of those moments when you say to yourself …rock n roll , hip hop , jazz … it just doesn’t matter when its great music..Danny

Fresh off of their story on CBS Sunday morning we bring you Preservation Hall Jazz Band in Preservation Hall. Honoring the roots of American Jazz and pushing the envelop at the same time!

old timey halloween playlist vol. iii

in a smokey, dim dance hall, the melodic spell of brass instruments and brassy vocals sets feet on fire & puts hips in a trance. whether robert johnson sells his soul to the devil, louis armstrong gets slapstick with a skeleton, or artists pay homage to the syncretic origins to their beloved genre, golden age jazz & blues are riddled with talk of ghosts, zombies, devils, and- just as spooky- jilted lovers
