The music includes the Blind Boys of Alabama, ‘Nobodys Fault’ (4/27/01), Bruce Hornsby, ‘Rainbows Cadillac/Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams’ (11/9/02), Medeski Martin & Wood. ‘Bemsha Swing/ Lively Up Yourself ,’ (10/26/02) along with songs from Ian Anderson, David Crosby, Kate Pierson and others. All proceeds from the disc will be directed to programs at the Bardavon.
