Out of New Orleans comes one of the city’s most renowned and respected traditional jazz bands, Preservation Hall. The band has teamed up with the incomparable pianist Allen Toussaint, Trombone Shorty and newly transplanted New Orleanian Yasiin Bey to bring a toe-tappin’, second-linin’ good time to a protest song. Creative director of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band Ben Jaffe told Rolling Stone, “Yasiin’s words are brilliant. I love that it’s a protest song that makes people dance. Those are the best kind.” “It Ain’t My Fault,” recorded at Carnegie Hall in January, will be released on St. Peter and 57th Street on Sept. 25th.
Rolling Stone holds the goods, so you can stream it there. I found some footage from the concert, which you can check out below.
