Willie Nelson, Wynton Marsalis & Norah Jones – Here We Go Again: Celebrating The Genius Of Ray Charles

I cannot thank BMV enough for this one!!

The 5th Annual Toronto Expedition Series, Part 6 (CD)

Recorded during two shows at the Rose Theater (NYC, 2009-02-9/10), this is a jazz-soaked, fantastic romp through Ray Charles’ incredible songs. The orchestra nails it completely, soloing beautifully all over the place.

Wynton’s huge tone is technical and precise, where Willie is close yet still laidback, and Norah’s soulful… it shouldn’t all work together but it does. They’ve really captured Ray’s spirit of musical inclusivity.

You can absolutely hear how much fun they’re having. I truly loved this stylish disc!
