Preservation Hall Jazz Band: That's It!

Airs Thursday, September 5 at 9 p.m.  For over 50 years, Preservation Hall Jazz Band has brought life to the sounds of New Orleans. 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.
