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.
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….
