The PRESERVATION HALL JAZZ BAND is a true American music original, a multi-award winning ensemble of New orleans jazz greats who come together purely out of the love of music, community and education. Beginning in a small venue in New Orleans in 1961 with the legendary Sweet Emma Barrett, students will take a journey through genuine American music history. A highlight of this program aside from interviews with Ben Jaffe, son of the Preservation Hall founders, is a performance by 17 year old sax student Isaac Stevens, who gets to perform with the band at the end.
