One of the original new-school New Orleans brass bands ignites dancing in the aisles and guarantees a good time. As with many a show since '77, there was dancing and handkerchief-waving aplenty, and several original members were present to anchor the proceedings.</p><p>Personnel</p> Tue, 06 May 2014 01:00:00 +0000 43625 at http://redriverradio.org Newport Jazz Festival: Dirty Dozen Brass Band New Orleans Jazz Festival: Blues Night http://redriverradio.org/post/new-orleans-jazz-festival-blues-night <p><strong>Airs Monday, March 24 at 8 p.m. &nbsp;</strong>Join us this week for the next program from the New Orleans Jazz Festival&nbsp;showcasing highlights from the 2013 festival.

Some of the original members hailed from the beginning of Jazz itself. The music that Preservation Hall Jazz Band plays has been passed down through the generations. Now they have written their first-ever album of entirely new songs that both respects their traditions and takes them into the future. In this one-hour radio special, you'll hear about the band, life in New Orleans and the new music from members Ben Jaffe, Charlie Gabriel and Rickie Monie, plus their co-producer Jim James of My Morning Jacket.
