Willie Nelson & Wynton Marsalis
The Red Headed Stranger seems to be ageless, always on the road again (as he says). Maybe he owes his longevity to spliffs but, whatever his secret is, only B.B. King and Bob Dylan challenge him for logging tour miles. Tonight, he's performing at the temple of pre-bop boosters with the head honcho himself, Wynton Marsalis. Their recent collaboration is well-named as Two Men With the Blues, which includes not the Chi-town variety but jump-blues and pre-rock R&B alongside some nice lounge standards; he can't resist "Stardust" and "Georgia on My Mind," but neither should you.
