I almost forgot! Yo-Yo Ma released his new album Songs of Joy & Peace today. It includes a duet (of sorts) with James Taylor covering George Harrison’s “Here Comes the Sun”. The album also includes collaborations with Alison Krauss, Chris Botti, Diana Krall, Renée Fleming and others.
A deluxe version of the album includes a 60-minute bonus DVD with behind-the-scenes recording session footage, a photo gallery and music videos (one of which is of James and Yo-Yo’s “Here Comes the Sun”). The iTunes digital version of the album also includes the music videos. A preview of the “Here Comes the Sun” music video at iTunes shows James and Yo-Yo in the studio.
