Willie Nelson and Wynton Marsalis play the music of Ray Charles

 (TV)

Willie Nelson and Wynton Marsalis play the music of Ray Charles Blu-ray delivers stunning video and reference-quality audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

A living legend interprets a timeless one as Willie Nelson tackles the American songbook of the late, great Ray Charles, with a little help from jazz superstar Wynton Marsalis and the inimitable Norah Jones. Recorded live at New York's Frederick P. Rose Hall as part of the Jazz at Lincoln Center series, this exciting performance includes classics such as "Hit the Road, Jack," "Hallelujah (I Love Her So)," "Unchain My Heart" and more.

Willie Nelson and Wynton Marsalis play the music of Ray Charles Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Willie Nelson and Wynton Marsalis Play Ray Charles arrives on Blu-ray with an above average VC-1 1080p transfer that still belies its (admittedly high-def) television roots from time to time. Originally filmed for and broadcast on cable's HD Net, this hour and a half concert does best in its amazingly detailed close-ups, several of which I have attempted to replicate here in my screencaptures. These up close and personal shots offer really stupdenous detail, everything from the weathered hands of Willie to the almost preternaturally smooth skin of Wynton. Finger smudges on Wynton's trumpet can also be seen quite clearly when the stage lights hit it just right. Colors are appealingly well saturated and very lifelike. There's not an eye popping palette to deal with here, though sometimes the stage is bathed in a very cool, resonant blue hue. Where the video image may disappoint some is in the group shots. For some reason these look a bit softer than the closeups, with a somewhat surprising lack of definition, perhaps hampered by the darkness in which the players find themselves. That said, the bulk of this excellent concert is filmed from medium close-ups to seemingly "in their laps" close-ups, so ultimately there's not a bunch to complain about here.


Willie Nelson and Wynton Marsalis play the music of Ray Charles Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

The concert has been wonderfully recorded with two DTS HD-MA options, a 5.1 surround and a 2.0 stereo folddown. This is what recorded concerts should sound like but too seldom do. You'll hear the really forceful low end right off the bat on this piece when drummer Jackson sets the beat with his bass drum, and the subwoofer kicks in with punches you can virtually hear compress the air. Luckily the rest of the frequency ranges are similarly lively, with Marsalis' blistering trumpet soaring over the top of the massed band sound. Occasionally Nelson's guitar gets lost in the shuffle, but as I indicate above, I actually wonder in watching Willie's fingering at times if he's actually playing, at least some of the time. (Is there such a thing as "finger-synching"?). Dynamic range is also really good throughout this concert, with some of Jones' quieter moments as lovingly rendered as the more raucous, bluesy work of the entire band. The piano is especially warmly recorded, with Nimmer's hommages to Charles (and Charles' many acolytes, like Dr. John) cutting through the band sound with precision and nuance. I did some spot checking with the 2.0 folddown and it's certainly just fine for a stereo representation of this concert, but the 5.1 includes some excellent use of surround channels, where you'll distinctly hear, for example, Jones and Nelson up front, with the rest of the band filling the side and rear channels. It's a thrilling experience and one which projects the listener literally right into the middle of an incredible jam session.
