James joined Paul Simon, Bonnie Raitt and more to play for a crowd of 60,000 in London’s Hyde Park this past Sunday. James’ 13-song set with his All-Star Band was part of the Barclay Bank-sponsored “British Summer Time Hyde Park” concert series.

In 2004, James performed “Mean Old Man” with the Wynton Marsalis Septet at the Lincoln Center Gala. That performance is now available on United We Swing: Best of The Jazz at Lincoln Center Galas with proceeds supporting Jazz at Lincoln Center’s educational programs. Order the CD now at Amazon.
