Bassist, Sousaphone player and creative director Ben Jaffe stood on stage at the College of Saint Rose’s Massry Center on Tuesday night, and introduced his bandmates one by one. They ambled out on stage individually, each adding their instrument to the musical mix.

“We’re gonna take you on a trip to a very special place…,” Jaffe told the sold-out crowd.

And if there was any doubt about where the Preservation Hall Jazz Band was coming from, they made it perfectly clear with their opening one-two salvo of “Basin Street Blues” and “Bourbon Street Parade,” name-checking two of the most famous avenues of New Orleans and indeed the jazz world.

The Preservation Hall Jazz Band  With Tom Waits]Ah yes, there’s just something so delightfully stubborn – almost visionary – about making 78 RPM music in an iPod world.

Next month, Preservation Hall Recordings will release 504 limited edition hand-numbered 78 RPM vinyl records featuring two tracks by the Preservation Hall Jazz Band with very special guest vocalist Tom Waits.

All proceeds from the sale of this very special project will benefit the Preservation Hall Junior Jazz & Heritage Brass Band.
