  1. A recorded version of Ain’ No is available on NPR web site.
    It’s from the original version recorded live during the Higher Ground Concert at JALC.

  2. I have been trying to find the live version of Ain’ No. I thought there was a CD or DVD available of the entire concert, but have not been able to find any. I had the whole thing recorded on a cable box, but unfortunately the box crapped out on us. That was one fantastic concert, and Ain’ No was a very moving tribute to the people of NOLA, and is one fantastic tune.

    Thank you Wynton, class always shows!
