WILLIE NELSON & WYNTON MARSALIS : NIGHT LIFE [2008]

Μια από τις άφθονες ηχογραφήσεις του τραγουδιού του Willie Nelson είναι αυτή από το Two Men With The Blues, το ιδιαίτερο άλμπουμ που κυκλοφόρησε στα late ’00s με τον Wynton Marsalis. Ζωντανά ηχογραφημένο στο Jazz At Lincoln Center, έδρα του κορυφαίου τρομπετίστα-συνθέτη.

One of the numerous recordings of Willie Nelson’s song is this one from Two Men With The Blues, the special album he released in the late ’00s with Wynton Marsalis. Recorded live at Jazz At Lincoln Center, home of the leading trumpeter-composer.

When the evening sun goes down
You will find me hanging round
The night life ain’t no good life
But it’s my life
Many people just like me
Dreaming of old used-to-be’s
And the night life ain’t no good life
But it’s my life
Listen to the blues they’re playing
Listen to what the blues are saying
Mine is just another scene
From the world of broken dreams
And the night life ain’t no good life
But it’s my life
Listen to the blues they’re playing
Listen to what the blues are saying
Mine is just another scene
From the world of broken dreams
And the night life ain’t no good life
But it’s my life

    What an organic collaboration. It seems no matter the musical genre, Willie is always singing the blues. 🙂

    A little different for good old Willie. I saw Willie in concert 40 odd years ago. It was a terrible concert. I was really disappointed. Did you know the only reason Willie still has his old Martin guitar, Trigger, is because it was at the shop being worked on when the IRS raided his place and took all his possessions for payment of taxes Willie owed?
