The Last Great Traffic Jam

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
As a matter of course, one wants to despise records like this. Part of a legendary band reunites 20 years after its dissolution and the death of a founding member Chris Wood -- reminiscent of the Who -- and hits the road with audio and video gear in tow for an "historic" tour. In the case of what was left of Traffic -- Steve Winwood and Jim Capaldi -- this isn't the case with their 1994 reunion. The Last Great Traffic Jam offers a document that's worth hearing. The pair hired keyboard giant Randall Bramblett, who also plays saxophones and flute, percussionist Walfredo Reyes, and guitarist/bassist Mike McEvoy.

The pair hired keyboard giant Randall Bramblett, who also plays saxophones and flute, percussionist Walfredo Reyes, and guitarist/bassist Mike McEvoy. The result is a live Traffic album: the band's best tunes played exceptionally well, and at times even inspired, such as on Bramblett's saxophone solo on "Low Spark of High Heeled Boys," or Winwood's guitar break in "Dear Mr. Fantasy," or the soulful versions of "Walking on the Wind" and the rip-up of "Glad."

    Like Traffic? Watch the interview

    I know Steve Winwood from Blind Faith and John Barleycorn Must Die. I'm no serious audiophile, so let's just say I enjoyed the cuts. And, the value for two CDs.


    I especially appreciated the interview with Steve Winwood and Jim Capaldi. They speak of the good old days, and how music was done differently at the time. The industry and marketplace has changed since. I bet musicians haven't. There's a guy at work who isn't a professional musician, loves playing the guitar, and knew the music of Traffic. He saw the CD on my desk, I told him about interview. He borrowed it. I bet he'll love it.
