Dave Mason's Traffic Jam
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee, songwriter, and legendary guitarist Dave Mason has been making music since the age of 18 when he teamed up with fellow England native Steve Winwood to form the band Traffic. Since then he has penned dozens of hits, and has been linked with numerous other members of rock and roll elite, including Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Fleetwood Mac,The Rolling Stones, Graham Nash, Stephen Stills, Rita Coolidge, Leon Russell, Ron Wood and Mama Cass Elliot. Mason has been performing to sold-out audiences for years and has sold millions of recordings worldwide.
“Mason sounds as good, or possibly better, than ever. His voice is in fine shape, and it’s a wonderful voice with a great range and the ability to convey a world of feeling. From beginning to end, this concert was a standout. Among the well thought-out selections were Traffic’s ‘Dear Mr. Fantasy,’ ‘World in Changes,’ ‘Let it Go Let it Flow,’ and Delaney & Bonnie’s ‘Only You Know and I Know.’ Of course, a Dave Mason show wouldn’t be complete without ‘Feelin’ Alright’ and ‘Only You Know and I Know.’ Mason threw in some newer songs as well, most notably the bluesy ‘Good 2 U,’ and the country-flavored ‘Ain’t Your Legs Tired Baby (From Running Through My Mind’). I thought ’40,000 Headmen’ was particularly spectacular.”
