Double LP Featuring Guest Artists Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, James Taylor, Natalie Merchant and more!

The Wynton Marsalis Septet are joined by a host of iconic musicians for this compilation album featuring the Best of The Jazz at Lincoln Center Galas.  Guest artists include Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, James Taylor, Willie Nelson, Natalie Merchant, Lenny Kravitz, Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks and more!

Recorded between 2003 and 2007, United We Swing finds an unparalleled array of music talent that collectively boasts 94 Grammy Awards joining Jazz at Lincoln Center Managing and Artistic Director Wynton Marsalis (a nine-time Grammy Award winner himself) and some of the world’s top jazz musicians to perform blues-inflected versions of iconic American repertoire. Those one-night-only, live performances have never been released before. They include Lenny Kravitz performing Marsalis’s hypnotizing, New Orleans-inflected arrangement of Kravitz’s own song, "Are You Gonna Go My Way"; Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks uniting for a stirring, infectious take on Civil Rights anthem "I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel to Be Free"; Bob Dylan adding harmonica licks to a deeply felt, in-the-pocket rendition of "It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry"; and Ray Charles taking the stage for one of his final performances to play "I’m Gonna Move to the Outskirts of Town." Together these artists raise their voices to highlight jazz’s importance to America’s cultural heritage and to remind us that, even in divided times, music can unite us all.
