The Wynton Marsalis Septet are joined by a host of iconic musicians for this
compilation album featuring the Best of The Jazz at Lincoln Center Galas.
Guest artists include Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, James Taylor, Willie Nelson,
Natalie Merchant, Lenny Kravitz, Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks and more!
Recorded between 2003 and 2007, United We Swing finds an unparalleled array of
music talent that collectively boasts 94 Grammy Awards joining Jazz at Lincoln
Center Managing and Artistic Director Wynton Marsalis (a nine-time Grammy Award
winner himself) and some of the world’s top jazz musicians to perform
blues-inflected versions of iconic American repertoire. Those one-night-only,
live performances have never been released before. They include Lenny Kravitz
performing Marsalis’s hypnotizing, New Orleans-inflected arrangement of
Kravitz’s own song, "Are You Gonna Go My Way"; Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks
uniting for a stirring, infectious take on Civil Rights anthem "I Wish I Knew
How It Would Feel to Be Free"; Bob Dylan adding harmonica licks to a deeply
felt, in-the-pocket rendition of "It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to
Cry"; and Ray Charles taking the stage for one of his final performances to play
"I’m Gonna Move to the Outskirts of Town." Together these artists raise their
voices to highlight jazz’s importance to America’s cultural heritage and to
remind us that, even in divided times, music can unite us all.
