The great John Mayer jammin' with the equally great Leonardo Amuedo during a set with Chris Botti almost 1 year ago at the Blue Note. Sounds like a Miles Davis tune. Leonardo just posted it on his Youtube channel.

Chris Botti: Trumpet
Geofrey Keezer: Piano
Billy Kilson: Drums
Carlitos del Puerto : Bass
Lisa Fischer : vocals

Good for John for getting up there. Is that other guitar player from Italy? He's really good. And that Chris Botti is one smooth cat with a helluva career. How does he do it?

Oh well here it is:

Hi Jan,
Thanks for your words!
I was using a Roland Jazz Chorus 120 and John too.
I was playing my Sadowsky telecaster with a BB preamp overdrive pedal from XOTIC and a Line " M9".
John was using a Swollen Pickle Fuzz from Way Huge (Dunlop)
John came to play only on the first set but he stayed and played on the second set as well.
He is a very nice guy.



Best,

Leo

Good for John, I'd be crapping my pants if I had to Jam with those guys.

Talk about a song where you need to stay in the pocket!

PS - That drummer is badass.

Also, I'm hesitant to ask, is this song shifting around in tempo? Or am I just mad?
