Contains Covers of Jimi Hendrix & Ray Charles Tunes "Wait Until Tomorrow" & "I Got A Woman"!
On the heels of a pair of multi-platinum albums and three Grammy Awards, John Mayer has stripped things down to the bone by forming the John Mayer Trio with drummer Steve Jordan (Bruce Springsteen, Rolling Stones) and bassist Pino Palladino (the Who, Jeff Beck). The trio's sold-out fall tour has now been documented with a live album, John Mayer Trio Live. The recording from the House of Blues in Chicago includes both Mayer originals and the Trio's interpretations of cover songs.
Mayer and his cohorts use words like "natural" and "organic" when talking about the way the group came together, and for good reason. The three players broke the ice, performing Jimi Hendrix's "Bold As Love" for the Tsunami Aid benefit and a month later they reteamed for the Grammys, doing Mayer's double-award winner "Daughters".
According to Mayer, "I've just decided to go to my next place, and my next place is Steve Jordan and Pino Palladino. It's a very thought-out process of taking what excites me about Eric Clapton and B.B. King and Buddy Guy and Blind Faith and Derek & the Dominos and the Band and Cream, taking elements of all that and place it in my thing..."
