Here We Go Again: Celebrating The Genius Of Ray Charles (feat. Norah Jones)

Here We Go Again: Celebrating The Genius Of Ray Charles (feat. Norah Jones) by Willie Nelson
Released: Mar 2011
Label: Blue Note Records
The previous concert collaboration that Willie and Wynton put out resulted in the first No. 1 pop album for both artists. So they decided to do it again, this time with Norah Jones, for a tribute to Ray Charles. Instead of being a crass cash-in, this feels just right, partly because the talented trio embodies Brother Ray's belief that the blues, jazz, soul and country are all just separate streams from the same mighty river. Wynton's band blazes throughout, while each vocalist digs deepest on the ballads, including a version of "Losing Hand" that may actually best Ray's studio original.
