Announcing The New Album From The Preservation Hall Jazz Band: "So It Is"
Today, Thursday February 23, 2017, we announce the release of our new album, "So It Is," featuring all-new original music from the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, out April 21st! “So It Is” finds the classic PHJB sound invigorated by a number of fresh influences, not least among them their 2015 life-changing trip to Cuba.
In Cuba, all of a sudden they were face to face with their musical counterparts. There’s been a connection between Cuba and New Orleans since day one - we’re family. A gigantic light bulb went off and they realized that New Orleans music is not just a thing by itself; it’s part of something much bigger. It was almost like having a religious epiphany. Listen to "Santiago" the first single off "So It Is" below.
