History has proven that Willie Nelson will duet with pretty much anybody who comes along, and while this open-hearted open mind sometimes backfires, more often than not it results in some of his most sublime recordings. Two Men with the Blues, his album with jazz trumpeter Wynton Marsalis recorded over a two-night stand at Jazz at Lincoln Center on January 12 and 13, 2007, belongs in the latter category, standing as truly one of the most special records in either Nelson's or Marsalis' catalog
But this live set with the don of trad jazz sparks his interest. Both take this trawl through American standards with the ease of experienced men. Marsalis and his band's solos are tightly structured; this isn't jazz to test or stretch Nelson. But his voice, so light it can be applied to anything and sometimes seems to feel nothing, finds its range on "Basin Street Blues".
