Show Notes: 

Eric Clapton donated his time in support of Jazz at Lincoln Center. This performance was the annual black-tie fundraising gala for Jazz at Lincoln Center (EC and Wynton Marsalis, who is the artistic director of JALC, previously performed together at the 2003 fundraising event). The two public performances on Friday and Saturday evenings were filmed and recorded. 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.
