Back in January, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band rang in its 50th anniversary at Carnegie Hall with a series of sold-out performances with guests like Allen Toussaint, GIVERS, My Morning Jacket, Trombone Shorty, Mos Def, Tune-Yards and others — and in September, Rounder Records will release a live recording, St. Peter and 57th.

Also in September, the band will release a 50th anniversary box set on Legacy Recording, featuring a four-disc, 58-track anthology from albums released between 1962 and 2010. The live album and the box set will both be out Sept. 25.
