this supergroup is amazing, 29 Nov 2006
this dvd is a must for any fans of the artists here. i like most blues,and some jazz. i bought this dvd bcause i'm a huge clapton fan. the music is mostly instrumental(except going down slow,third degree,layla,everyday i have the blues)giving every member of the band a chance to solo. clapton delivers some amazing guitar work on this dvd cool rythems and stinging solos that we all know he's capable of when in the mood. he looks cool and relaxed as if he is just enjoying being part of the band. steve gadd does a solid job on drums as always. joe sample sounds smooth and slinky throughout never over playing,great stuff. marcus miller brings the funk to the sound of the group grooving away like a pro as always. david sanborn does some great solos here,but overplays a little on some tracks to my ear. the strongest tracks for me are the opening track full house wich really sets the mood. ruthie is a beautiful slow track mainly featuring eric. going down slow and shreveport stomp also shine.i have always stuck by eric clapton even when he has released disapointing pop style albums.this dvd like many other recent releases such as me and mr johnson and crossroads festival are a reminder of just what an amazing musician he is.buy this dvd you will love it if you have any interest in any of these artists.
