Item Details

Once in a while the stars align and something magical happens ... as on the night Jazz at Lincoln Center presented a salute to the late, great bluesman, Ray Charles. Two musical iconoclasts, Willie Nelson and Wynton Marsalis, along with the stunning songstress Norah Jones, collectively brought their unique musical perspective to the legendary artist's hits such as Hallelujah I Love Her So, Hit the Road Jack, and Unchain My Heart. The evening's musicians are supported by insightful and vibrant performances from saxophonist Walter Blanding, pianist Dan Nimmer, bassist Carlos Henriquez, drummer Ali Jackson, and harmonica great Mickey Raphael.

Hallelujah, I love her so
You are my sunshine
Come rain or come shine
Unchain my heart
Crying time
Losing hand
Hit the road Jack
I'm moving on
You don't know me
Here we go again
Makin' whoopee
I love you so much (it hurts)
What'd I say
That's all.
