Every night, Preservation Hall presents intimate, acoustic concerts featuring ensembles made up from a current collective of 100+ local master Traditional New Orleans Jazz practitioners. These master musicians have learned the traditional style from the greats that played before them at Preservation Hall. The Preservation All Stars feature some of those master veteran musicians. With a line-up changing week to week, the Preservation All Stars provide an ever-evolving take on the New Orleans Jazz tradition.

Darryl Adams

Alto saxophonist Darryl “Little Jazz” Adams started playing music when he was six years old. At school, he performed in concert and symphony bands, and on the weekends, in dance combos. His mentors were Danny Barker in the Fairview Baptist Church Band and alto saxophonist Harold Dejan, leader of the Olympia Brass Band, who took Adams under his wing when he was sixteen. He also played rhythm and blues in the Fabulous Phantoms, which opened for the Meters, and many other groups. In 1975 Adams composed “Blackbird Special,” a song that pioneered a new sound popular with younger brass band fans by fusing jazz, funk, and brass band styles. Adams also wrote “Tornado Special” and “Hot Dog Man.” A lover of tradition and the leader of the Tornado Brass Band, Adams says when you’re in a second line, you have to watch the people: “If you’re just playing, you’ll never learn.”
