We were just talking about Jim James’ recent work with NOLA’s own Preservation Hall Jazz Band when, lo and behold, an email has arrived announcing that James’ band My Morning Jacket are heading out on tour with the legendary group.
The MMJ/PHJB tour will kick off on 4/20 in Birmingham, Alabama before trekking through the Southeastern U.S. (including a date at the New Orleans Jazz Festival, of course) and concluding in Columbus, Ohio.
Tour dates for the spring jaunt are listed below, but you may also want to check out the teaser site for the Preservation benefit album that James contributed to, as it includes lots of streaming music, including
James’ Yim Yames’ take on “Lousiana Fairytale” (he also recorded a version of “St. James Infirmary”) thataway.
