©Preservation Hall ABOUT THE BAND: The Preservation Hall Jazz Band derives its name from Preservation Hall, the venerable music venue located in the heart of New Orleans' French Quarter, founded in 1961 by Allan and Sandra Jaffe. The band has traveled worldwide spreading their mission to nurture and perpetuate the art form of New Orleans Jazz. Whether performing at Carnegie Hall or Lincoln Center, for British Royalty... or the King of Thailand, this music embodies a joyful, timeless spirit. Under the auspices of current director, Ben Jaffe, the son of founders Allan and Sandra, Preservation Hall continues with a deep reverence and consciousness of its greatest attributes in the modern day as a venue, band, and record label. The building that houses Preservation Hall has housed many businesses over the years including a tavern during the war of 1812, a photo studio and an art gallery. It was during the years of the art gallery that then owner, Larry Borenstein, began holding informal jam sessions for his close friends. Out of these sessions grew the concept of Preservation Hall. The intimate venue, whose weathered exterior has been untouched over its history, is a living embodiment of its original vision. To this day, Preservation Hall has no drinks, air conditioning, or other typical accoutrements strictly welcoming people of all ages interested in having one of the last pure music experiences left on the earth. The PHJB began touring in 1963 and for many years there were several bands successfully touring under the name Preservation Hall. Many of the band's charter members performed with the pioneers who invented jazz in the early twentieth century including Buddy Bolden, Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong, and Bunk Johnson. Band leaders over the band's history include the brothers Willie and Percy Humphrey, husband and wife Billie and De De Pierce, famed pianist Sweet Emma Barrett, and in the modern day Wendall and John Brunious. These founding artists and dozens of others passed on the lessons of their music to a younger generation who now follow in their footsteps like the current lineup. The Preservation Hall Jazz Band is: Mark Braud - trumpet, vocals Charlie Gabriel - clarinet, vocals Clint Maedgen - sax, vocals Freddie Lonzo - trombone "The Professor" Rickie Monie - piano Ben Jaffe - tuba, string bass Lil' Joe Lastie - drums Charter members of The Preservation Hall Jazz Band include: George Lewis, Sweet Emma Barrett, Cie Frazier, Billie & DeDe Pierce, Big Jim Robinson, Slow Drag Pavageau, Sammy Penn, Louis Nelson, Kid Thomas Valentine, Narvin Kimball, Emanuel Sayles, Emmanuel Paul, John Brunious, Walter Payton, Albert Burbank, and dozens more New Orleans Legends.

Animated Music Video for Preservation Hall Hot 4's "St. James Infirmary(King Britt Remix)" DOWNLOAD THE VIDEO, MUSIC AND MORE ON ITUNES: http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewAlbum?id=335111824&s=143441 ABOUT THE CARTOON: Preservation Hall Recordings is proud to present a brand-new, locally produced animated music video! Directed by Lafayette-based visual artist James Tancill, the music video for the Preservation Hall / King Britt remix of St. James Infirmary by the Preservation Hall Hot 4 is an animated romp in the style of Max Fleischer (Betty Boop, etc.) that plays out like a storybook caper set against a backdrop of beloved New Orleans characters and institutions both old and new. Audiences familiar with the iconography of New Orleans music and culture will thrill as characters and beloved landmarks from the past and present find new life in an animated tableau. Set to music by The Preservation Hall Jazz Band (as led by dearly departed bandleader John Brunious, Jr. and remixed by noted Philadelphia DJ and producer King Britt (Digable Planets, E-Culture) and Preservation Hall Creative Director Ben Jaffe) the video for St. James Infirmary follows the antics of Ronnie Numbers and Mr. The Turk of The New Orleans Bingo! Show through a dark and mischievous imagining of the songs classic narrative as sung by Clint Maedgen (PHJB, The New Orleans Bingo! Show). Starring animated versions of Clint Maedgen, Ben Jaffe, and King Britt; and featuring appearances by such departed icons as John Brunious Jr., Sweet Emma Barrett, and Marie Laveau in such familiar settings as Preservation Hall, Jackson Square, and the long-defunct Pontchartrain Beach amusement park, St. James Infirmary is the third music video from Preservation Hall Recordings to feature the cross-over appeal of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and The New Orleans Bingo! Show. ABOUT THE PRESERVATION HALL HOT 4 RELEASE "ST. PETER STREET SERENADE" AVAILABLE ON ITUNES NOW! Following in the tradition of our 1996 recording, The Preservation Hall Hot 4 with Harold Duke Dejan, St. Peter Street Serenade is a collection of five small-arrangement performances of traditional jazz selections featuring vocalist Clint Maedgen and a variety of special guests. Embracing the new era of the independent online release, Preservation Hall Recordings has decided to make this very special package available for digital download only. Available exclusively from iTunes, these five tracks are available individually or as part of a package that includes the brand-new animated music video for St. James Infirmary, as well as the very popular videos for Complicated Life and I Cant Give You Anything But Love.

Currently an Instructor at the University of Louisiana, James has a BA and MFA from the University of New Orleans. Having spent most of his time in New Orleans projecting films for local theatres and teaching drawing and cartooning at the New Orleans Charter Middle School, it was only natural that he would eventually form his own animation company. Motivated by his passion for film, music, and classic cartoons, as well as by his deep love of all things New Orleans, James is very proud of the collaborative effort by which he and Ben Jaffe of Preservation Hall have captured the city of New Orleans in what may be the citys first locally-produced animation about the city itself. About King Britt (in his own words) Well, bios are funny because they tell the story of the past of who you are in the present. I try to only live in the present and the future (as I said, try). Even though beginning my career in 1990 on the now legendary house label Strictly Rhythm as E- Culture, being Silkworm in the ground- breaking, Grammy winning Digable Planets, starting Ovum Recordings with Josh Wink, producing platinum remixes for Macy Gray, Solange, Donna Lewis and hundreds of others, winning the highest grant in the country as the first dj/producer, The Pew Fellowship or starting my empire, FiveSixMedia, I still try to live in the NOW and not the then. So of course, now, I am a father, fiance', musicologist of sorts and media revolutionary. My label and company FiveSixMedia, set the example of an individual who is able to live outside the box and show what freedom truly is. Doing my own thing on my own time and assisting other to move into that space as well. The future is bright because I say it is. Stop and smell the flowers.

©Preservation Hall The Louisiana State Museum has launched a major exhibition celebrating the 50th anniversary of Preservation Hall at the Old U.S. Mint. Co-curated by Preservation Hall and the Museum, Preservation Hall at 50 will tell the story of this New Orleans music landmark from the early 1960s to the present through artifacts, archival and contemporary photographs, film and audio clips, interviews and oral histories. Now open for public viewing, the exhibit will run through November 2012. Highlights include large color images of today's Preservation Hall musicians by art photographer Shannon Brinkman matched with oral histories recorded by radio documentarian Eve Abrams. Brinkman and Abrams are co-authors of Preservation Hall, published in March by LSU Press. Adding wider historical context, the Museum will display iconic objects from its collection -- including Louis Armstrong's first cornet -- and instruments played by Preservation Hall jazz greats such as clarinetist George Lewis and bassist Alcide "Slow Drag" Pavageau. Also represented are works by two visionary artists associated with Preservation Hall, French Quarter painter Noel Rockmore (1928-1995) and folk artist Sister Gertrude Morgan (1900-1980). The Preservation Hall exhibition is part of ambitious long-range plans to establish the Old U.S. Mint as a center for live music and music history.
