Heart ‘n Soul of Jazz 2013 featuring…
PRESERVATION HALL JAZZ BAND
Saturday, February 16, 2013 – 8:00 p.m.
Carolina Hotel at Pinehurst Resort
The Preservation Hall Jazz Band derives its name from Preservation Hall, the venerable music venue located in the heart of New Orleans’ French Quarter, founded in 1961 by Allan and Sandra Jaffe. The band travels worldwide spreading their mission to nurture and perpetuate the art form of New Orleans Jazz. Whether performing at Carnegie Hall or Lincoln Center, for British Royalty or the King of Thailand, their music embodies a joyful, timeless spirit. Under the auspices of current director, Ben Jaffe, the son of founders Allan and Sandra, Preservation Hall continues with a deep reverence and consciousness of its greatest attributes in the modern day as a venue, band, and record label.
The PHJB began touring in 1963 and for many years there were several bands successfully touring under the name Preservation Hall. Many of the band’s charter members performed with the pioneers who invented jazz in the early 20th century including Buddy Bolden, Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong, and Bunk Johnson. Band leaders over the band’s history include the brothers Willie and Percy Humphrey, husband and wife Billie and De De Pierce, famed pianist Sweet Emma Barrett, and in the modern day Wendall and John Brunious. These founding artists and dozens of others passed on the lessons of their music to a younger generation who now follow in their footsteps like the current lineup.
Heart ‘n Soul of Jazz is ACMC’s glitziest event and is presented in February every year at Pinehurst Resort. Since 1986, the world’s finest jazz artists have come to Pinehurst for one spectacular jazz event. Past performers have included Freddy Cole, Marian McPartland, Diane Schuur, Ellis Marsalis, Nicholas Payton, Toots Thielemans, Milt Jackson, Karrin Allyson, Herbie Mann, John Pizzarelli, Tierney Sutton, and Shirley Horn.
