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.

Customer Reviews

Simply Wonderful

What a great combination Marsalis and Clapton! This is a great album full of rich texture from two of my favorite musicians. Download this today, sit back, relax, and enjoy it. Also, if you like discovering new music I found a new cat by the name of Buddy Mix who has some great songs. Go search for Buddy Mix Why Goodbye EP here on itunes. I love his songs "Why Goodbye" and "Only a Miracle", but the whole EP is superb. I really hope Clapton and Marsalis continue and take this on the road with a tour so I can see this live. Those who are with me please speak up!

Try not to smile while listening to this...

Great fun! Clapton & Marsalis? I wouldn't dare "review" this….

Tis recording captures that once in a life time performance. it is a must for the library of any true jazz or blues lover.

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.
