The legendary Preservation Hall Jazz Band present the soundtrack to A Tuba to Cuba, the critically acclaimed documentary directed by T.G. Herrington and Danny Clinch. The film follows Ben Jaffe of New Orleans famed Preservation Hall Jazz Band as he seeks to fulfill his late father's dream of retracing their musical roots to the shores of Cuba in search of the indigenous music that gave birth to New Orleans jazz. A Tuba to Cuba celebrates the triumph of the human spirit expressed through the universal language of music and challenges us to resolve to build bridges, not walls. The New York Times said: This joyous, wide-ranging account of a New Orleans jazz band's 2015 visit to Cuba is crammed with fascinating facts and toe-tickling tunes. And, from the LA Times: Jaunty, at times poetic chats and drop-ins with many Big Easy and Cuban jazz artists, discussion of their musics African lineage (the Atlantic slave trade factored in), stirring examples of native instrumentation, and pulsating performances combine with colorful, travelogue-type shots (love those old Cuban theaters) and vivid archival footage to create a vibrant and joyous portrait. Preservation Hall Jazz Bands Ben Jaffe said of Kreyol, the lead single from the soundtrack: Every evening in Havana people gather along the waterfront to socialize. Ive always been taken by the tempo at which people stroll, like New Orleans, theres a very particular rhythm to their walk. That rhythm was the inspiration for Kreyol. In fact, Kreyol is the Cuban spelling of Creole. You can feel that same Creole influence in New Orleans, its one of our many shared connections with Cuba. (The film is available through Amazon Video, iTunes, DirecTV, Google Play, YouTube Movies and more. Check your local service provider for additional listings.) About Preservation Hall Jazz Band: At a moment when musical streams are crossing with unprecedented frequency, its crucial to remember that throughout its history, New Orleans has been the point at which sounds and cultures from around the world converge, mingle, and resurface, transformed by the Crescent Citys inimitable spirit and joie de vivre. Nowhere is that idea more vividly embodied than in the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, which has held the torch of New Orleans music aloft for more than 50 years, all the while carrying it enthusiastically forward as a reminder that the history they were founded to preserve is a vibrantly living history. Preservation Hall Jazz Band recently signed with Sub Pop Records, who are re-releasing the bands 2013 album Thats It! (over 39,000 copies sold) and 2017s So It Is on June 28th, with new music to follow.
