The legendary Preservation Hall Jazz Band present the soundtrack to A Tuba to Cuba, the critically acclaimed documentary directed by T.G. Herrington and Danny Clinch. The film follows Ben Jaffe of New Orleans’ famed Preservation Hall Jazz Band as he seeks to fulfill his late father's dream of retracing their musical roots to the shores of Cuba in search of the indigenous music that gave birth to New Orleans jazz. A Tuba to Cuba celebrates the triumph of the human spirit expressed through the universal language of music and challenges us to resolve to build bridges, not walls.
The New York Times said: “This joyous, wide-ranging account of a New Orleans jazz band's 2015 visit to Cuba is crammed with fascinating facts and toe-tickling tunes.” And, from the LA Times: “Jaunty, at times poetic chats and drop-ins with many Big Easy and Cuban jazz artists, discussion of their music’s African lineage (the Atlantic slave trade factored in), stirring examples of native instrumentation, and pulsating performances combine with colorful, travelogue-type shots (love those old Cuban theaters) and vivid archival footage to create a vibrant and joyous portrait.”

Preservation Hall Jazz Band’s Ben Jaffe said of “Kreyol,” the lead single from the soundtrack: “Every evening in Havana people gather along the waterfront to socialize. I’ve always been taken by the tempo at which people stroll, like New Orleans, there’s a very particular rhythm to their walk. That rhythm was the inspiration for ‘Kreyol.’ In fact, ‘Kreyol’ is the Cuban spelling of ‘Creole.’ You can feel that same Creole influence in New Orleans, it’s one of our many shared connections with Cuba.” (The film is available through Amazon Video, iTunes, DirecTV, Google Play, YouTube Movies and more.

At a moment when musical streams are crossing with unprecedented frequency, it's crucial to remember that throughout its history, New Orleans has been the point at which sounds and cultures from around the world converge, mingle, and resurface, transformed by the Crescent City's inimitable spirit and joie de vivre.

So It Is (2017) finds the classic Preservation Hall Jazz Band sound invigorated by a number of fresh influences, not least among them the band's 2015 life-changing trip to Cuba. A visit to the island, so integral to the evolution of jazz and New Orleans culture in general, had long been in the works when President Obama's diplomatic opening suddenly allowed for a more extensive journey than had originally seemed possible. Producer David Sitek, a founder of art rock innovators TV on the Radio who has helmed projects by Kelis, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Santigold among others, offered both a keen modern perspective and a profound respect for the band's storied history. Back in print on vinyl and CD via Sub Pop, which signed Preservation Hall Jazz Band in 2018, and will soon be releasing new music by the band.

From its humble beginnings as an art gallery in the 1950s,
Preservation Hall has become an indelible landmark
of New Orleans thanks to a choice meeting in 1961.
Philadelphia business school graduate and tuba-player
Allan Jaffe had been honeymooning in New Orleans with
his wife when he discovered the French Quarter, where
Preservation Hall resided. The couple grew to love the
French Quarter and the concerts that the hall had been
hosting to drum up interest in the art gallery.
Allan Jaffe ended up staying in New Orleans, and even
took on the job of managing Preservation Hall, and
hosting a cavalcade of local Louisiana musicians, whose
ages ranged from 60 to 90, and had been dealing with
poverty and local racism. These musicians, along
with Jaffe himself, would become the rotating lineup
of Preservation Hall's house jazz band, and attract
audiences for miles to come to the French Quarter to hear
their traditional take on jazz music, eventually branching
out to tour the United States, and put out records.
One of their most celebrated is their first album with
Columbia Records, the 1977 album New Orleans (Vol. 1),
which with a title like that it's no surprise that it wears its
love for the Louisiana city on its sleeve. The 7-piece band
joyously shares its take on a vareity of Dixieland
standards, spirituals, and a few blues numbers. The
music is simplistic and light on technical or virtuostic flair,
but none of that matters to the album's players, whose
infectious and revelrous spirit, and genuine love of
traditional jazz can be felt through the speakers.
