From NME, June 20, 2020:

The Preservation Hall Jazz Band was founded in 1961 as a way to promote New Orleans jazz. They often hold their own ‘Midnight Preserves’ sessions at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, which sees them joined by a host of special guests. Viewers will be able to donate to the Preservation Hall Foundation and the Preservation Hall Musical Collective as they watch the event.

Paul plays the trumpet in the rendition of “When The Saints Go Marchin’ In”, which is significant for different reasons:

Happy Birthday Louis Armstrong. Thanks for lending me your trumpet! 

Paul McCartney – From Facebook, August 4, 2020

I got asked if I could play trumpet on a charity thing for the Preservation Hall Of Fame. I played trumpet when I was a kid. I said “the only thing I know is The Saints… When The Saints…” And they said, “we are going to do that”. They sent me a track and I ended up playing trumpet on it. Yeah, that was for a charity for them, and I think, when it went online, it raised like nine million dollars!
