Eric Clapton & Wynton Marsalis


Subindo ao palco Sr. Wynton Marsalis.... Wynton Learson Marsalis (Nova Orleans, 18 de outubro de 1961) é um trompetista e compositor americano. Conhecido pela sua sisudez e seriedade ao tratar a música, é um músico polêmico. Diretor do Jazz at Lincoln Center em Nova Iorque, é considerado "embaixador da música americana" pelo seu profundo respeito e divulgação das tradições musicais. Começou na música muito cedo, tendo manifestado profundo interesse pelo jazz e pela música erudita. É considerado um dos maiores "virtuoses" do trompete atualmente. A lista de músicos com os quais já colaborou inclui Dizzy Gillespie, Arturo Sandoval, Herbie Hancock, Jack DeJohnette, Bobby McFerrin, entre outros. Só fera... E agora, Eric Clapton.




New York City’s premier jazz venue got the blues last April when Wynton Marsalis and Eric Clapton performed together in Rose Theater at Frederick P. Rose Hall, home of Jazz at Lincoln Center for two sold-out shows dedicated to vintage blues. The extraordinary collaboration, billed as Wynton Marsalis & Eric Clapton Play the Blues, paired these musical virtuosos with members of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra as they brought to life a repertoire of songs selected by Clapton and arranged by Marsalis.

"This collaboration was a pure joy because Eric is about music. We didn’t have any pettiness or stupidity about anything small. It takes great courage to come to New York and learn 12 new arrangements in three days, front a band that you’ve never played with in a form of music you don’t normally play, play three concerts, and sing almost all of the material. Eric did this flawlessly, and after all of that he told me, “I’d rather play the rhythm parts than play any solos.” That’s why I love and respect him."
