Review: This CD features an unparalleled array of music talent and some of the world’s top jazz musicians performing blues-inflected versions of iconic American repertoire. Their backgrounds and musical stylings are diverse. Each track features a different musician up front, but 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.
