Between 2003 and 2007, Jazz At Lincoln Center in New York City has hosted a series of galas featuring a vast array of stars boasting an impressive combined total of 94 Grammy wins. On , Blue Engine Records will issue “United We Swing” featuring previously-unreleased live performances from the aforementioned series at Jazz At Lincoln Center.
The album features tracks from the late Ray Charles leading the Wynton Marsalis Septet on “I’m Gonna Move To The Outskirts,” Bob Dylan on “It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry,” John Mayer on “I’m Gonna Find Another You,” Eric Clapton on “I’m Not Rough” and Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks teaming up on a Civil Rights anthem, “I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel to Be Free.” Also among the 16 tracks is Willie Nelson fronting “Milk Cow Blues,” Jimmy Buffett singing “Fool’s Paradise” and a NOLA-infused arrangement composed by Marsalis of Lenny Kravitz’s “Are You Gonna Go My Way” featuring Kravitz himself.
Both Eric Clapton and John Mayer have worked with ISINA’s legendary mentors as well. We all look forward to a very exciting album this March!Get started
