B. B. King and John Mayer Play the Blues, Live in 2006

(18 minutes)

What do I like about this? I like that King has no time for Mayer’s fanboy flattery–let’s cut the crap and play. I like watching them gradually work it out; by the end of the jam they’re pretty much in sync. Not totally simpatico, but close to it. I like watching the smooth elegance of King’s technique, the perfect shape of his riffs. Mostly I like that both of these guys can really play.
