Episode Summary

EDIT
New Orleans: Preservation Hall - Keeping the history of jazz alive
AIRED:
Science has yet to invent a time machine, but walk into 726 St. Peter St. in New Orleans' French Quarter any night of the week and you may feel like you've stumbled into one anyway. Since the early 1960s, Preservation Hall has served as a haven for musicians familiar with traditional New Orleans jazz. As the clip above suggests, it's a cant-miss stop for any visitor to New Orleans, and not just for historical value. The Jaffee family-first founders Allan and Sandra and now their son Ben-set out to provide a venue for veteran players. They succeeded and then some: Preservation Hall has played a key role in passing traditional sounds from one generation to the next.moreless
