This review is from: Live At Montreux 1997 [DVD]  (DVD)
This is a one-off recording of a one-off supergroup.
The band line-up is:
Steve Gadd - Drums
Marcus Miller - Bass/Bass Clarinet
Joe Sample - Keyboards
Eric Clapton - Guitar / Vocals
David Sanborn - Alto Sax
This is mostly instrumental, with only vocals by Clapton on a couple of tracks. As you would expect with a crack rhythm section like this the groove generated is fantastic and the opening track 'Full House' demonstrates this amply. Clapton had insecurities about playing with such a Jazz based group of musicians, however he more than holds his own against the prodigious talents of Sample, Miller and Sanborn (not to mention the drummers drummer Gadd).
The numbers performed are:
Going Down Slow
In Case You Hadn't Noticed
First Song / Tango Blues
Put It Where You Want It
In A Sentimental Mood / Layla
Every Day I have the Blues
For this DVD think mid-period Crusaders, so if you like blues based Jazz/Rock you'll love this. Great Stuff.
