  • Showcasing the first three incarnations of New Orleans' pre-eminent, traditional jazz institution, the Preservation Hall, The Best of the Early Years features previously unavailable recordings as well as tracks culled from past releases including the 1964 live recording Sweet Emma and Her Preservation Hall Band as well as the 1966 live recording Billie and De De and Their Preservation Hall Band. Featuring such journeyman New Orleans jazz musicians as trumpeter Percy Humphrey, alto saxophonist Harold Dejan, trumpeter Milton Batiste, and banjo player Narvin Kimball, the compilation paints a picture of the Preservation Hall as the "rough but honest" torchbearer of its storied city's musical legacy. ~ Matt Collar
