The Preservation Hall Jazz Band & The Del McCoury Band - "I'll Fly Away" (video)

Photos by Sarah Zupko

Last night, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and the Del McCoury Band, joined forces for a foot-stomping, soul movin' version of the gospel classic "I'll Fly Away" on the stages of the Late Show with David Letterman.

Last night two of my favorite bands on the planet, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and the Del McCoury Band, joined forces for a foot-stomping, soul movin' version of the gospel classic "I'll Fly Away" on the stages of the Late Show with David Letterman. The tune is the highlight of the recent American Legacies album, currently my favorite record of the year. Our very own Thomas Hauner was at last night's Letterman appearance and we'll have photos from the gig shortly.

You can catch Preservation Hall on tour this summer both with and without the Del MCoury Band, as both groups have a loaded summer schedule with many dates as joint appearances. Do not miss them under any circumstances if they are in your town. After the jump are a few snaps of Preservation Hall's recent appearance at the American Music Festival over the July 4th weekend at Fitzgerald's just outside Chicago.
