Jazz at Lincoln Center American Songbook Schedule Announced, Win a Signed Blu-Ray Copy of “Willie Nelson and Wynton Marsalis Play The Songs of Ray Charles” + Maceo Parker Tickets at Jazz at Lincoln Center

American Songbook Series

With its breathtaking setting and it’s eclectic choices in artists, the American Songbook at The Allen Room at Jazz at Lincoln Center is one of New York’s best annual concert series. This year, the American Songbook series is digging deep into the indie canon once again with shows by the likes of: Nellie Mackay, Dirty Projectors, St. Vincent, Gabriel Kahane and a Hal Willner curated evening featuring Rufus Wainwright (ahem, he’s Canadian), Bill Frisell, and Van Dyke Parks. Sure, you can see some of these acts at other venues in city, but once you’ve experienced a show at the Allen Room, you’ll realize why you wouldn’t want to go anywhere else.

WILLIE NELSON & WYNTON MARSALIS PLAY THE MUSIC OF RAY CHARLES, SPECIAL GUEST APPEARANCE BY NORAH JONES

Recorded Live at Jazz at Lincoln Center s Frederick P. Rose Hall on February 10, 2009

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 saxaphonist Walter Blanding, pianist Dan Nimmer, bassist Carlos Henriquez, drummer Ali Jackson, and harmonica great Mickey Raphael.

WILLIE NELSON AND WYNTON MARSALIS PLAY THE MUSIC OF RAY CHARLES gives music lovers a front-row seat to the sold-out concert in New York City at Rose Theater, including rehearsal footage, exclusive interviews and photos.

  1. Seen Mr. Willie Nelson/Phish play small venue in, Hersey Park (2001), what loyal fans he has! I will never forgot, the very large women in a white tank-top; bra-less and jumping around in front! I am sure that Mr. Nelson hasn’t either! Fun times and great show (from what I can remember…lol). Bumpershine…I am really loving your website and spreading the word! Not just polishing the apple for give-away either! New fan! :)
