PAUL SIMON – ‘IN THE BLUE LIGHT’ – OUT NOW

September 7, 2018

Paul Simon – our Artist of the Month and one of the greatest authors of the American songbook – today releases ‘In The Blue Light’,  featuring a diverse, talented cast of musicians who have joined Simon to lend fresh perspectives on 10 of his favorite (though perhaps less-familiar) songs, drawn from his unparalleled body of work.

Among the many artists joining Simon on ‘In The Blue Light’ are jazz icons trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, guitarist Bill Frisell and drummers Jack DeJohnette and Steve Gadd, as well as New York-based chamber ensemble yMusic and many more.

Says Paul: “It’s an unusual occurrence for an artist to have the opportunity to revisit earlier works and re-think them; to modify, even completely change parts of the originals.

“Happily, this opportunity also gave me the gift of playing with an extraordinary group of musicians, most of whom I hadn’t recorded with before. I hope the listener will find these new versions of old songs refreshed, like a new coat of paint on the walls of an old family home.”
