Originally having met in 1972 at a Tangiers music festival, pianist Randy Weston and saxophonist Billy Harper have collaborated on and off for over four decades, the most notable being their recording made at Montreux Jazz Festival in 1974, Carnival. The pair's 2013 recording, the Roots of the Blues, brings these two giants of Jazz together to create moving renditions of 10 compositions from Weston's incredible anthology along with three standards and a Harper original. The underlying elements intertwining Weston and Harper are a deep understanding of and heartfelt connections to the blues.
