Jazz Talk: Ben Jaffe of Preservation Hall Jazz Band | Spoleto at Home

Duration: Approximately 30 minutes


Music and conversation 

As part of a discussion series that aims to illuminate various artists’ perspectives and styles, jazz critic and Spoleto’s Wells Fargo Jazz advisor Larry Blumenfeld speaks with Ben Jaffe of Preservation Hall Jazz Band, a band which has kept the torch of New Orleans jazz aloft for more than 50 years. Jaffe is the son of Preservation Hall’s founders Allan and Sandra Jaffe, and under Ben’s current leadership, this rousing septet carries forward a sonic continuum that stretches back to the city’s beginnings and redefines what New Orleans music is today.
