    Just New Music...what cha got?

    John Mayer working on a free form jazz instrumental album, very interesting indeed. Not everybody may like the guy, but you have to respect his musicianship and the ways he creatively pushes the musical envelope:

    https://soundcloud.com/jhnmyr/little-sur

    John Mayer/Steve Jordan/Pino Palladino/Chick Corea/Wallace Roney

    Here’s a full seven minute tune I loosely composed called “Little Sur,” recorded last February in New York City. I got together with some of my friends and favorite players for six amazing days of playing music with no rules, no plans, and no pressure. Oh, and no vocals. What came from it was a really inspired batch of recordings. Hours of music that I’ll need to sift through at some point should it ever become an album. (I hope it does.) If you’re wondering where I am in the mix, that’s me playing a Music Man long scale guitar… Pino and I are kind of both living in the bass space. As soon as Chick came in on the piano, I knew something really deep was taking place. This is the rough mix that was given to me at the end of the day, as it has lived on my laptop since.
    I tried to find a minute, two minute clip to share with you, but these recordings just don’t work any other way than in their unabridged form. So here it is. Free music. Played freely, shared freely. Put it on and go for the ride… If you dig all seven minutes, then surely you deserve them.

    There are times for marketing strategies, and there are times for just p l a y i n g. The original design for all musicians. Hope you enjoy hearing this as much as I did.

    John

It just doesn't fit his voice at all. I can't possibly think of a song that he's done that was worse being honest. HOWEVER< all musicians do make a stinker or two in their career so I am not revoking my fancard, I just hope the rest of the album combines his Repo Man/Henry Nearly Killed Me style with more of a Black Keys touch than this poppy stuff.

    And to this, I respond with RayLa's "Airwaves," a nice, mellow kind of groove :

    Better. Still don't love it, but better. Could do without so much hacking.
