Willie Nelson/Wynton Marsalis - Live From Jazz At Lincoln Center New York City
Eagle Eye Media, the wholly-owned subsidiary of Eagle Rock Entertainment, is proud to release Live From Jazz At Lincoln Center New York City on DVD by legendary trumpeter and educator Wynton Marsalis and country music superstar/renegade Willie Nelson.
On this night, on this stage, over two nights in January ’07, blues, jazz and country meld together to create an awesome whole. From New Orleans to Georgia, from the pens of such titans as Hoagy Carmichael, Jimmy Reed, Hank Williams, Duke Ellington, Willie himself and others, these two men give the concert of a lifetime.
This is the superb set of music that makes up the current Willie & Wynton Two Men With The Blues CD, for it is deep within the folds of the blues where these two seemingly diametrically-opposed giants find common ground. One now gets to see the rare chemistry, the knowing onstage looks, and the inherent joy of making this blissful music. Blues music, from its inception, has always been a music meant to uplift.
Tracks are intercut with interviews of both men where they expound articulately about the material and the presentation.
