“Here We Go Again: Celebrating the Genius of Ray Charles,” featuring Willie Nelson, Wynton Marsalis and Norah Jones performing songs associated with the late soul great, is scheduled for a March 29 release on Blue Note Records.

The album’s 12 tunes feature new, original arrangements by Marsalis and artists within his Jazz at Lincoln Center circle. Marsalis arranged the set list as though it were a story line about love.

“It’s what I call root-groove music,” adds Marsalis. “The root music cuts across all the boundaries and genres in American music.”
