Show Notes:

Eric Clapton donated his time in support of Jazz at Lincoln Center. Two evenings previous, a set was performed for JALC’s annual black-tie gala. The two public performances (Friday and Saturday) were filmed. The shows were billed as “Wynton Marsalis & Eric Clapton Play The Blues.” The set list, with the exception of Layla, was drawn from songs selected by Eric Clapton and arranged by Wynton Marsalis. Layla was added during rehearsals at the suggestion of Carlos Henriquez.
