Willie Nelson Live Recordings With Wynton Marsalis
Technically, he's not a Dallas artist. But Willie Nelson only lives, what, an hour and half from here in Abbott? And by continuing to perform around the region, like he did just this month with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra at the Myerson Symphony Center, I think it's fair to say that he's more ours to claim than anyone else's, right?
With that in mind, here's something to check out: Willie Nelson performing alongside Wynton Marsalis and the Wynton Marsalis Quartet in New York City this past August. It's from a radio broadcast in which Marsalis provides voiced-over anecdotes, so it's a quality production. And, yep, it's ripe for the downloading.
I'll give credit where it's due: Wilonsky found this gem. And, to be honest, I kind of rolled my eyes when he told me about it. But it's really good stuff. Great for active listening; you can really get wrapped up in the stories and in Willie's voice.
Or, if Willie don't do it for ya, you can still peruse throughout the rest of the catalog on this site, BigOZine2.com. Other full concerts this site is offering for download include: Wilco, Brian Wilson (studio demo recordings), Black Flag and The Police.
I imagine those will keep you all busy for a while. -- Pete Freedman
