Nelson, Willie / Wynton Marsalis

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Nelson, Willie / Wynton Marsalis - Two Men With The Blues Two Men With The Blues
Pop Used - LP 04454 Blue Note
Mint 2008 2LP 180gm Gatefold. "Two Men With The Blues, Willie Nelson's Album With Jazz Trumpeter Wynton Marsalis Recorded Over A Two-Night Stand At Jazz At Lincoln Center Stands As Truly One Of The Most Special Records In Either Artist's Catalog. If The Pair Initially Seem Like An Odd Match, It's Only Because Wynton Long Carried The Reputation Of A Purist, Somebody Who Was Adamant Against Expanding The Definition Of Jazz, Which Cast Him As The Opposite Of Willie, Who Never Found A Border He Couldn't Blur. The Engine For This Music Is Marsalis' Band, With Nelson Bringing His Harmonica Player Mickey Raphael Along, Which Is Enough To Give This A Flavor That's Quite Distinct From A Typical Marsalis Session Without Being Foreign. Similarly, This Isn't Quite Alien Territory For Nelson Either, As The Repertoire Relies Heavily On Blues Standards, Including A Pair Of Tunes He Cut On Stardust. Two Men With The Blues Has The Warm Comfort Of A Reunion And The Freshness Of A New Collaboration, Feelings That Are Palpable As The Album Kicks Off With A Loose Yet Nimble Reading Of Jimmy Reed's "Bright Lights, Big City." It's A Subtle Arrangement That Doesn't Draw Attention To Its Unique Touches, Something That's Also True Of The Flashier Take On Hank Williams' "My Bucket's Got A Hole In It," Which Lurches And Careens Like A New Orleans Marching Band, Coming To A Highlight When Marsalis Throws In A Few Lines From "Keep On Knockin'" For Good Measure. These Sly Spins On Standards, Along With A Jump Blues Reworking Of Merle Travis' "That's All," Are Balanced By Numbers That Are Perhaps A Bit More Expected But Are No Less Delightful. It's Perhaps Easy To Take For Granted, But Two Men With The Blues Is Truly Something Special, As It Captures Two Masters Enjoying Their Common Ground While Spurring Each Other To Hear Old Sounds In New Ways." - Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide... more details
