“Return to the roots of jazz, America’s great indigenous art form, and don’t miss an opportunity for a performance by the ‘best jazz band in the land.’” —San Francisco Examiner
“When I meet someone like Allen Toussaint – that for me is like meeting, you know, someone the equivalent of the Dalai Lama, because for me, he influenced the way I played the piano. He’s a historical part of rock-and-roll.” —Elton John
“At Carnegie Hall the Preservation Hall Jazz Band showed how easily it could hop from era to era. It could work like a rhythm-and-blues horn section or a tightly arranged little big band if need be, but it could also switch back into the polyphonic glories of vintage New Orleans jazz, in which nearly every instrument seems to improvise around the tune at the same time.” —Jon Pareles of The New York Times
