Preservation Hall Jazz Band http://wwno.org en Preservation Hall Jazz Band: Tiny Desk Concert http://wwno.org/post/preservation-hall-jazz-band-tiny-desk-concert Our goal for this special holiday Tiny Desk Concert is simple: to bring you joy. <a href="http://www.npr.org/artists/16317454/preservation-hall-jazz-band">Preservation Hall Jazz Band</a> is a hot and historic outfit from New Orleans, and its members brought us a tuba-wielding Santa and some original holiday cheer and praise — what they call a Cajun Christmas from the French Quarter.<p>We lit some lights and decorated my desk and shelves as best we could, but it's this amazing band — complete with saxophone, trombone, trumpet, drums and a couple of tubas — that lit this place up.

The 11 songs hang together so well that, like the most flattering gowns, they seem to be cut on the bias.<p>Out July 9, <em>That's It!</em> features entirely original material — a first in Preservation Hall's 50-year tradition. Like previous recordings, the music conjures the band's intimate performance space, just a can-kick away from the crush of Bourbon Street.
