iTunes Review

Play the Blues is Wynton Marsalis and Eric Clapton’s tribute to the sounds of early 20th-century America. Since both artists are learned sophisticates with a deep love for the material, their performance is as educational as it is celebratory. The rapt audience is treated to a variety of styles, including Chicago blues (“Forty-Four”), spirituals (“Just a Closer Walk With Thee”) and ragtime (“Ice Cream”). Clapton and Marsalis also throw down a wild card when they transform classic rock staple “Layla” into a brassy, New Orleans-style dirge.

Totally Unexpected

Well as a huge Blues fan I was really excited about a new live Eric Clapton album but at the same time I was very dubious about it as I have very little experience or understanding when I comes to Jazz music, but I can happily say this album is amazing. Both Wynton Marsalis & Eric Clapton work off each other so well and the improvisational skill of them both is mind blowing, as for the rest of the band they cannot be faulted in any way with each of them been a true professional and highly skilled in there particular field.
All in all I would rate this album as one of my favourite albums of all time, a truly unique and very well captured album by everyone involved.

Just how much fun....?!

Just how much fun were these chaps having when they recorded this?! It's foot-tapping, engaging and infectious - I would love to have this amount of enjoyment from my job. Another very successful day at the office for Messrs Clapton and Marsalis!


This is so, so cool. I can't believe i used that kind of a word!! Being 65 i have listened to both Clapton and Marsalis for many years but never together and never better. makes red wine even better so the next listening will be with fine Scottish Malt Whisky. A dream

The most famous jazz musician since 1980, Wynton Marsalis had a major impact on jazz almost from the start. In the early '80s, it was major news that a young and very talented black musician would choose to make a living playing acoustic jazz rather than fusion, funk, or R&B. Marsalis' arrival on the scene started the "Young Lions" movement and resulted in major labels (most of whom had shown no interest in jazz during the previous decade) suddenly signing and promoting young players.
