Hey Guys,

The PRESERVATION Album is something very special to me. 100% of the proceeds of the sale of this album will go directly to this good cause. You may notice the sale prices of this album are a little weird. That is because we are selling this album to you at exactly our cost. This is a great collection of music and the money goes to a very good cause. I highly encourage you to come into Looney Tunes and pick up this great piece of music.

Over the last year, more than 20 of American music’s most exciting artists traveled to Preservation Hall in New Orleans to collaborate with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band on classic New Orleans repertoire. The end result is a timeless and joyous celebration of New Orleans music. Proceeds from the sale of the project will benefit Preservation Hall and The Preservation Hall Music Outreach Program. The album is set for release on Fat Tuesday, February 16, 2010 in standard CD, deluxe edition and double-LP collectible formats.

Preservation Hall, located in the French Quarter just three blocks from the Mississippi River, remains the intimate venue it originally was when it opened in 1961 as a performance space dedicated to honoring, celebrating and perpetuating New Orleans jazz. Originally erected as a Spanish Tavern in the 1750’s, Preservation Hall is a modest French Quarter structure. The building has no running water or air conditioning, and the only seating accommodations are six benches and a few cushions strewn about the worn wooden floor. Its raw and weather-beaten exterior remains unpainted. A half-century later, Preservation Hall continues to ensure the cultural legacy and the future of this beautiful tradition by allowing by allowing young and old to collaborate together.

In the spirit of New Orleans, legendary and emerging artists donated their time to travel to New Orleans to record this special compilation album benefitting Preservation Hall and the Preservation Hall Music Outreach Program.

Thanks Guys – ENJOY!!!
Peace, Karl Groeger Jr.
