    Clapton was wrong. "Layla" wasn't included in the printed program for Wyntom Marsalis and Eric Clapton Play the Blues, two nights otherwise dedicated to a bedrock repertoire of early-jazz tunes and pre-war blues. But the new arrangement, minus the signature guitar lick from Clapton's 1970 recording with Derek and the Dominos, was a perfect fit: a slow-drag rhythm ringed by mourning horns, recasting the song in the style of the New Orleans lament "St. James Infirmary." In the instrumental break, Clapton hit a series of stabbing licks lightly crusted with distortion, followed by Marsalis' slow parade of clean hurting peals – a moving dialogue in lovesickness and blues routes.
