"Anyone who has visited Preservation Hall in New Orleans will truly appreciate this CD as it captures the feeling of that great joyful and music-filled room. To those who have not been blessed with that experience, this CD will certainly whet your appetite for Dixieland. I have been a fan of New Orleans Jazz for over 50 years and never tire of listening to the old standards featured here. St. James Infirmary is one of my all-time favorites and is particulary good here. The Preservation Hall Jazz Band is one of the most important groups preserving and promoting this kind of music. This is also a super value and offers a good way to sample this music."
Good old New Orleans jazz

"I'm really enjoying this one. It brings back a lot of memories. I only gave it 4 stars because a couple of the songs are recorded at too slow a tempo. For the most part though its pure good music, well performed by people who know their jazz. I listened to it to and from work today and the tunes are still going through my head."

"As anyone knows who has visited New Orleans and been to Preservation Hall, a bare-bones venue where all you get is genuine old-time music, this band is as true to Dixieland's traditional roots as it gets. This recording is surprisingly hi-fi, and I had to check and make sure the players and singers weren't in the next room. The sound is very alive and crisp, the band's style engaging and laid back. The instrumental quality is outstanding throughout, are there are blue moments, as well as moments of sheer joy, spirituality, infectious liveliness, contemplativeness, and humor.
