  19. AWESOME CONCERT! I love when musicians come together to bridge gaps between two genres! Not that jazz and country have never come together before, but this was just a very special evening! I happened to catch about half of this concert on the XM’s Real Jazz. I’m a HUGE Willie fan and a big Wynton fan! Let me say, Willie ALWAYS sings the blues!
