John Mayer Trio / Try!

A homage of sorts to Hendrix, The John Mayer Trio hit it out of the park as the heartthrob Grammy Award winning guitarist, songwriter, recording artist took time from his trashy tabloid lifestyle to wax this killer Try! 2005 concert slab which shows off his formidable improve and vocal chops. Bassist Pino Palladino and drummer Steve Jordan work brilliantly in tandem in and out of the pocket akin to Jimi's funky Band of Gypsys. The Mayer trio repeats the magic on Where The Light Is: Live in Los Angeles (2008).
