Willie Nelson Sings the Blues with Wynton Marsalis and Friends

Special to air Labor Day on KIOS

Omaha, Nebraska – Two bright stars, country maverick Willie Nelson and jazz icon Wynton Marsalis, unexpectedly meet on common ground: the blues.

Recorded earlier this year in New York, this soulful concert features songs by well-known American composers such as Hoagy Carmichael, Duke Ellington, and Merle Travis, as well as songs written by more obscure bluesmen Harry Warren, Spencer Williams, and Jimmy Reed.

Listen to Willie Nelson Sings the Blues with Wynton Marsalis and Friends Monday September 3 from 7:00pm-8:00pm on KIOS(Photo credit: Joe Fornabaio).
