Premier latinoamericana

Jack White gathers a team of music heavyweights in a Los Angeles studio to replicate the atmosphere of the recordings of the ‘20s, using equipment from that era. A chance to remake the music that changed the world. 

As a festive corollary of the American Epic Trilogy, these sessions featuring contemporary musicians and the effective master of ceremony Jack White deliver an immediate and fresh feel that is occasionally heart-rending. Playing at the studio and recording the music with a very old equipment –a beautiful, intriguing, cumbersome machine used by many of the pioneers featured in the trilogy– the musicians pay tribute to the long history of American modern music, and test themselves in the trance of being, also, a part of it. Performances by Alabama Shakes, Elton John, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Taj Mahal, and White himself are all an exquisite splendor, and constitute not so much a somber preservation attempt as a celebration of the present in the form of a recognition to their predecessors.
