Rather than rehash the previous material Nelson and Marsalis had first presented, the threesome paid homage to the music of the late Ray Charles, the iconic star of soul, r&b, country, jazz and pop.   Keep reading »

    Those fans who gathered in large numbers under Marciac’s great jazz tent in France last summer came to hear celebrated trumpeter Wynton Marsalis and the much-loved accordionist Richard Galliano unveil their collaboration on the music of Billie Holiday and Edith Piaf.

This album, From Billie Holiday to Edith Piaf – Live in Marciac, is perhaps best described as the fusion of two passions rather than simply a meeting of great talent. The result is a concert consisting of: A…   Keep reading »

It features 22 tracks of Wynton’s signature jazz style as well as spoken word / poetry. It’s an ambitious effort, combining spoken word and music, and Wynton has given his quintet some formidable charts. The album is tempered with flashes of humor and plenty of swing.
