Product Description

CD Description

Wynton Marsalis and Eric Clapton are two of the finest musicians of their generation. They joined forces for the first time on Play The Blues - Live From Jazz At Lincoln Center. Over the years, many greats have graced the stage at Lincoln Center but none as luminous as the combined talents of Wynton and Eric. This special version of the album that ensued includes a DVD of the show, with bonus track.

Format:Audio CD
United by dalliances with purism as young men and an abiding love of classic blues and jazz, Eric Clapton and Wynton Marsalis are a more comfortable fit than it may initially seem. Both musicians are synthesists, not innovators, stitching together elements from their idols in an attempt to preserve the past while bringing it into the present, so their sensibilities are aligned and, in 2011, they're amenable to a partnership that explores their common ground.
So, Clapton and Marsalis held a series of concerts at New York City's Jazz at Lincoln Center in April of 2011, the guitarist selecting the songs (apart from "Layla", performed upon the request of bassist Carlos Henriquez), the trumpeter picking the band and working up the arrangements, using King Oliver's Creole Jazz Band as his template yet finding room for piano and, of course, guitar.
Clapton's choice of songs leans heavily toward the '20s -- so much so that the dip into postwar electric blues via Howlin' Wolf's "Forty Four" feels a bit of a shock -- and the arrangements are faithful to classic New Orleans jazz yet loose, never quite hidebound to tradition and finding plenty of space for every one of the players to roam; Clapton and Marsalis surely solo plenty, but so do trombonist Chris Crenshaw, clarinetist Victor Goines, and pianist Dan Nimmer.
There's not much ego on display -- even the inclusion of "Layla" doesn't feel forced, thanks to Marsalis' inventive New Orleans funeral arrangement of this overly familiar tune -- but the joy is palpable and the chemistry natural.
Compared to Wynton's duet albums with Willie Nelson, this is both more traditional and riskier, and compared to Clapton's latter-day duets with B.B. King and J.J. Cale, this finds the guitarist none too deferential.

4.0 out of 5 stars But probably will be 5 stars 14 Sep 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
4 stars on one listen to the CD and one watch of the DVD. My feeling is that one more listen it will be 5 stars. To be honest its not a combination of artists I thought I'd ever see. Wynton Marsalis is one of the finest Trumpet players on the planet, being an accomplished (thats an understatement) Jazz and Classical player. So to match him with Eric Clapton seemed a little odd. However as 'Bluenotes' excellent review explains better than I can they work together really well. The warmth and respect for each other seems natural and in no way forced.

The music in simplistic terms is mainly in the Trad Jazz tradition, as its mainly based on King Olivers 1920s band. With the exception of Clapton and his regular Piano player Chris Stainton the band is entirely Wynton Marsalis's. And what a band. I was fortunate enough to see the core of this band at Ronnie Scotts recently and they are absolutely brilliant. Eric Clapton isn't a Jazz guitarist but as he chose all but one of the songs (and the one he didn't choose was Layla), and most have a blues leaning he is really on home turf and contributes some fine solos, with Wynton Marsalis looking on approvingly.

Its great value for money to get the CD and the DVD, and certainly gets my recommendation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic stuff, thoroughly enjoyable! 19 Sep 2011
By Antoine
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Being a huge fan for many many years of EC, I bought this automatically as I would any new release of his. I wasn't quite sure what to expect, not being overly familiar with Wynton Marsalis and his music (being far more of a blues fan than jazz although that may change!). I needn't have worried, the band is top notch as one would expect and all concerned clearly enjoyed the experience. I love hearing how EC always approaches old songs or reworkings of familiar ones and Layla doesn't disappoint. The rest of the show is mostly in the trad jazz vein and is a joy to listen to. He contributes some fine solos, all in his trademark style, mostly on a Gibson 335 for a change (being better suited for jazz than a strat). The package with the DVD is definitely the one to go for especially with it being a live performance plus you get a few snippets of interviews and rehearsal footage and a bonus solo performance of Stagger Lee from Taj Mahal.

An excellent addition to EC's catalogue and one I'll probably be replaying a lot more than last year's studio album.

5.0 out of 5 stars OH BOY WHAT A BAND 16 Sep 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I must say I had my concerns about buying this album as Eric's latest album releases have been appalling and on top of that I hate Jazz, but I needn't have worried as here is an unusual slant on blues which works beautifully. Above all, Oh boy what a band. This tight knit band doesn't take prisoners and are all masters of their craft and as a live performance the sound is superb, I wish I had been there. The opening track "Ice Cream" is a rip roaring twenties style charleston number that swings from start to finish. At first I thought what's all this about then the second, third, fourth and fifth slow right down with track 3 "Joes Turners Blues" that wouldn't be out of place in a smokey filled night club. Track 7 "Layla" starts like a number has just ended then goes into a slow death march beat, a fascinating interpretation and above all Eric doesn't disappoint and neither does Wynton, great stuff. The album closes with "Corrine Corrina" a barn storming nearly 14 minute long number.
The album is based on the sound of New Orleans Jazz but Eric does have an influential input and I wasn't disappointed with his solo's. I was going to give this a four star rating but the band and sound quality is outstanding and I think it deserves five stars. Could this be a warm up to Eric bringing out a Rhythm and Blues solo album I hope so. Get it and I don't think you will be disapponted.
