|Preservation Hall Jazz Band: A Creole Christmas|
San Francisco Symphony Performance
Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall - 201 Van Ness Aven
New Orleans’ Preservation Hall Jazz Band (PHJB) returns to Davies Symphony Hall for a spirited evening of traditional New Orleans jazz. The band, which made its San Francisco Symphony debut in a 2009 holiday concert, 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. In July of this year Preservation Hall Jazz Band released their current recording, That’s It!, comprised of all-original music produced by Jaffe along with My Morning Jacket's Jim James. That's It! offers a collection of brand-new songs in the swinging blues and gospel-oriented traditions of New Orleans jazz as well as new songs co-written by several pop artists, including composer and singer-songwriter Paul Williams and Semisonic's Dan Wilson.
Please note that the San Francisco Symphony does not perform in this concert.
