The event was simply billed as “Willie Nelson Sings the Blues,” but the historic two-night stand on January 12 and 13, 2007 at Jazz at Lincoln Center was far more than that. Call it a summit meeting between two American icons, Willie Nelson & Wynton Marsalis, two of the most significant figures in modern-day country and jazz, who discovered common ground in their love for jazz standards and the blues. Their performance stirred the sounds of New Orleans, Nashville, Austin and New York City into a brilliantly programmed mix that was equal parts down-home and cosmopolitan, with plenty of swing and just a touch of melancholy. To say that these shows were a hot ticket would be an understatement. Luckily, the tapes were rolling and the results of this unique collaboration now constitute the Blue Note album Two Men With The Blues for everyone who couldn’t cram into The Allen Room.

This is a surprisingly good recording, and the pressing is excellent. This album is a bargain, two records well timed, not one side exceeds 20 minutes. Willie sounds extremely well for a 77 year old and Marsalis is a proven virtuoso. This album is a pleasure to listen, I've played several times since I got it.


Great idea but

2 total pros playing great music. Wynton is polished as always---and Willie can play anything. The music is a blast. The sound on this record is simply as good as it gets. So, if you are uncertain, buy it for its audiophile qualities and then you will simply fall for the music. My favorite surprise of 2008.
