America Classic is the 4th album Willie Nelson has released to the marketplace this year but it's only the second to feature newly recorded material. How does this album of jazz classics stack up with his whole catalog of records?
The big news for Duhks fans, prior to the release of this album, was that lead singer Jess Havey and drummer Scott Senior left the band and were replaced by Sarah and Christian Dugas respectively. With that cast change can longtime fans expect more of the same?
Willie Nelson has partnerned with so many artists over his career that it's sometimes hard hard to tell which if it worked and which of it didn't. Recorded in partnership with Wynton Marsalis, "Two Men With the Blues" is the work of two equally talented artsits. But does it stack up well with the rest of Willie's work?
