“The Last Waltz 40 Tour”captures the excitement from Blackbird Present’s two-night, sold-out concert event “Last Waltz New Orleans” which took place during Jazz Fest 2016 at the historic Saenger Theatre. Heralded as one of New Orleans best events during Jazz Fest, the epic event paid tribute to The Band’s milestone final concert with unprecedented performances and an extraordinary lineup of artists. “The last 30 minutes of The Last Waltz @SaengerNOLA was best thing I’ve heard @jazzfest” said Keith Spera, music critic, The New Orleans Advocate.
But let me assure you this project was worth the wait, ... and what the heck, we got two pretty nice kids outta the deal.
The album's title is "Light On My Path". The songs are long time favorites of her's and Producer Fred Mollen. Composed by such greats as Jimmy Webb, Louise Goffin, Cyndi Lauper, Marc Jordan, Jack Routh and Randy Sharp, Danny O'Keefe, and many more.
It's a beautiful record filled with lovely soulful vocal performances by Amy and some brilliant musicianship.
Fred Mollen weighs in once again as one the great producers of real live music.
