Last month, the Antibalas horns Martín Perna, Jordan McLean, Raymond Mason and Jas Walton were part of an all star cast recreating Bill Withers's legendary 1974 "Live at Carnegie Hall" concert. The band was composed of Greg Phillinganes, Steve Jordan, Willie Weeks, Felicia Collins, Bashiri Johnson, David Delhomme and an amazing massive string section.
Singers included Aloe Blacc, Dr. John, Gregory Porter, Michael McDonald, Anthony Hamilton, Jonathan Butler, Keb Mo, Valerie Simpson, Ledisi, Amos Lee, Kori Withers, Kathy Mattea, and Ed Sheeran.
