Album Description

I wanted to record Joe's record in the Hall, said producer and Preservation Hall creative director Ben Jaffe. The Hall represents purity to me. But on the second day of recording, Jaffe was taken by surprise when Joe Lastie s family showed up at the Hall and stepped into the driver s seat.

The solo project with Preservation Hall Jazz Band drummer Joe Lastie, Jr., was originally intended as a jazz session, with a few gospel tracks thrown in. But as it tends to happen in New Orleans, things didn t work out exactly as planned and all for the better.

His aunt Bettyann took over the piano and Joe's close family friend [Rev. Leon Vaughn] took over the organ, Jaffe said. Lastie s cousin, the well-known jazz drummer Herlin Riley, also joined the clan. Before I could put microphones in place, they began playing and singing and rejoicing. Joe and his family and friends played for one hour straight, tearing into classics like I ll Fly Away and Just A Closer Walk With Thee and when they were done, they had an album.

The final result JOSEPH LASTIE, JR. AND THE LASTIE FAMILY GOSPEL - is the kind of recording that could never have been planned, arranged or rehearsed. Lastie and his family s stripped-down gospel sound has an intimacy and a purity of spirit that along with a roof-shaking organ, courtesy of the Reverend Leon Vaughn positively feeds the soul. It s the unmistakable sound of family coming together for joy, praise and song, on the hallowed musical ground of Preservation Hall. And it s a sound that can only come from the heart.
