ONLINE BROADCAST (Originally recorded NOV 22, 2014)
Preservation Hall Jazz Band is a true New Orleans institution that defines the tradition of Crescent City music. Founded in the early 1960s by tuba player Allan Jaffe, the PHJB is now run by Jaffe’s son, tuba player Ben Jaffe, featuring a multigenerational wealth of New Orleans talent, and were the recipients of the SFJAZZ Lifetime Achievement Award at SFJAZZ Gala 2018.
For this incredible evening filmed in November 2014, the PHJB was joined by the late legendary pianist and songwriter Allen Toussaint, one of the most iconic figures in New Orleans music. Toussaint played an integral part in many of the greatest hits to emerge from New Orleans since the 1950s, and his contributions earned him a much-deserved induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.

The coronavirus separates us, threatening the fabric of community – but music connects, which is why we’ve launched Fridays at Five. It’s what we need right now: a new series of weekly pre-recorded concerts that aspire to connect you – to music, to musicians, to the warm and unique feeling of experiencing live music at the SFJAZZ Center.
For just $5 a month ($60 annually), you can become a Digital Member and tune in each Friday at 5 PM (PT) for the latest concert. Make it a regular date. Bring a glass of wine and cozy up – we think you will discover that digital technology can reveal new dimensions of musical performance. Fridays at Five is not your typical video concert series; it is designed to take you inside the music.
