MUSICIAN Born:

Dave Ihlenfeld

Dave Ihlenfeld grew up in St. Louis, where at age 3 he started picking out bass lines on the family piano while listening to Motown tunes on the radio. Lessons followed, to be abandoned in favor of viola, euphonium, and finally the tuba, but a piano opening in his high school jazz band provided the musical outlet he was seeking. Fame and fortune did not follow, so he attended DePauw and Indiana Universities, and then worked out of Indianapolis for too many years as a professional musician. Since 1996 he has resided in Arizona, where he is in demand as a performer on jazz piano and tuba

Every kind of Saxophones, Sousaphone, Tuba, Clarinet, Flute ... Here is my story. Sent at 8 eight years to the neighbourhood music school, at saxophone due to a lack of staff in the city orchestra (i wanted to play the trumpet, by the way...), and after trying to spend a « classic » life, becoming Chemical & Physical Measurements Superior Technician (yes, ma'am), i realize that i definitely prefer blow horns. Actually, Saxophone is not so bad ! After few years learning with Nicolas Dary, André Villéger, Philippe Macé, Tony Russo, Pierre Bertrand, Nicolas Folmer and Emyl Spanii (Paris 9th), i created a big band named L'Oreille Cassée, for wich i wrote all the pieces, and i recorded a CD album with Inama, co-led jazz sextet rewarded at Saint-Germain-des-Prés and La Défense 2007 Festivals. Today, i collaborate with Fred Maurin's 13tet Ping Machine and Jean Baptiste Court's quintet Pensativa

MUSICIAN Born:

Ben Jaffe

The son of Hall founders Allan and Sandra Jaffe, Ben was raised in and around Preservation Hall. Jaffe marched in his first Carnival parade at the age of nine alongside his father and parrain (godfather) Harold "Duke" Dejan. When he was thirteen, the lease on the building that housed the Hall was up for renewal. His father sat the family down and asked Ben whether they should continue. By 1984, many of the original musicians who had played at the Hall in its early days had passed away, yet the soul of the Hall remained the same. The young Jaffe replied, "Of course you continue!" Less than ten years later, the day after graduating from Oberlin College, Jaffe flew off to play upright bass with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band in France and began overseeing operations at the Hall
