From its humble beginnings as an art gallery in the 1950s,Preservation Hall has become an indelible landmarkof New Orleans thanks to a choice meeting in 1961.Philadelphia business school graduate and tuba-playerAllan Jaffe had been honeymooning in New Orleans withhis wife when he discovered the French Quarter, wherePreservation Hall resided. The couple grew to love theFrench Quarter and the concerts that the hall had beenhosting to drum up interest in the art gallery.Allan Jaffe ended up staying in New Orleans, and eventook on the job of managing Preservation Hall, andhosting a cavalcade of local Louisiana musicians, whoseages ranged from 60 to 90, and had been dealing withpoverty and local racism. These musicians, alongwith Jaffe himself, would become the rotating lineupof Preservation Hall's house jazz band, and attractaudiences for miles to come to the French Quarter to heartheir traditional take on jazz music, eventually branchingout to tour the United States, and put out records.One of their most celebrated is their first album withColumbia Records, the 1977 album New Orleans (Vol. 1),which with a title like that it's no surprise that it wears itslove for the Louisiana city on its sleeve. The 7-piece bandjoyously shares its take on a vareity of Dixielandstandards, spirituals, and a few blues numbers. Themusic is simplistic and light on technical or virtuostic flair,but none of that matters to the album's players, whoseinfectious and revelrous spirit, and genuine love oftraditional jazz can be felt through the speakers.
