The Preservation Hall Jazz Band has been around since 1961, when Ben Jaffe’s father, Allan Jaffe also a tuba player, started the group with local New Orleans musicians to preserve and enhance NOLA’s unique musical heritage. The last 50 years have seen numerous line-ups and even multiple bands at the same time and these groups have travelled the globe spreading their joyful and soulful classic jazz sounds. Of course, Preservation Hall is also a major tourist attraction itself and many fortunate souls have had the chance to hear the group play on home turf over the years.

Tori, by her own admission, has worn a lot of hats since then, and it is with the same spirit in which Tori approached Gold Dust that we will explore Amos’ prolific career with a patented Spotlight series coming very soon to PopMatters.
