Preservation Hall Jazz Band


Preservation Hall Jazz Band
Originally uploaded by entropybound.
As the year ended, it was quite staggering to reflect on the insane menagerie of biblical-scale disasters which took place. It was thus quite moving to take in one of the performances by the Preservation Hall Jazz Band at the Jazz Standard in NYC. Amazing to consider that these guys have seen their home city (and homes, presumably) washed away but still maintain such a level of good humor, professionalism and sheer fun. We even got to see Allen Toussaint (a New Orleans legend, and a longtime fave of mine) amble out the door after the early show while we waited to descend down for the late one.
