Tommy's Fresh Record Club #2 John Mayer Trio - Try!

First things first, I love live records. Try! is my all time favourite live album, this was the moment John Mayer became a guitar hero and banished all previous perceptions people had of him as a musician. Backed by rock legends Pino Palladino (bass) and Steve Jordan (drums) the sound is no frills, raw, searing blues rock. Featuring a mix of original tunes, covers and re-workings of earlier Mayer songs.

Touring as the trio gave Mayer a fresh perspective and inspired the tracks that were soon to be heard on the awesome 'Continuum' record.

Check out this live record and then go grab 'Continuum', you won't be sorry!
