Just A Closer Walk With Thee – 2014

Wynton Marsalis and Eric Clapton


A unique and exciting version of the New Orleans hymn

Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra have collaborated with many guest artists from a variety of fields through the years.

One of the most successful concerts took place in 2011 when the legendary rock guitarist Eric Clapton and singer Taj Mahal joined the band.

On an extensive, episodic, and ultimately exciting version of “Just A Closer Walk With Thee,” Eric Clapton (who was clearly having a great time) and Taj Mahal are among the stars in what turned into a rollicking and very unique performance.
