The following description was submitted by the event organizer.
A Tuba To Cuba is as much a soundtrack to the documentary of the same name as it is a collection of songs that were written and recorded during the filming and after its completion. The writing and recording of The Preservation Hall Jazz Band's previous release, So It Is, began before the band's first trip to Cuba in 2015. The band members had no idea that it would become the album it would until they returned home from that first trip. The A Tuba To Cuba soundtrack is comprised of a combination of songs that are both in the movie and new songs that aren’t in the film.
