Clapton

Genre: Blues; Lead Performer: Eric Clapton

Eric Clapton, the guitarist formerly known as ”God,” seemingly can’t make an album without revisiting a few blues standbys and checking in with his muse JJ Cale. But Clapton, his latest trip into mellowness is sleepier than usual, as he dabbles in gospel, Dixieland, and even a little Irving Berlin. Tasteful guitar solos put the focus on his relaxed vocals, and he dons his Rod Stewart dinner jacket for ”Autumn Leaves.” Guess even God needs a nap once in a while. C
