Watch it here

Produced by Dhani Harrison and David Zonshine, Harrison stated, "I've always imagined a small club show where my generation of musicians could cut loose on some of the deeper tracks from his career... So, in a totally new and vibrant way, I once again found myself taking the stage with some of my most treasured musical heroes to the sound of the most familiar music in my life... I hope you enjoy listening to these as much as I do. They are some of the best interpretations of my father's songs I could have ever thought possible."
