Forming the Bluesbreakers in the mid-1960s, Mayall
assembled an ever-rotating cast of players including, most famously, a young
Eric Clapton. The group were one of a new wave of bands, pioneering an electric
sound that was both steeped in tradition and furiously alive. The group’s back catalogue
is dazzling in scope, with classic albums liberally scattered throughout the
latter decades of the last century.
Aged 81, Mayall shows few signs of slowing down. From the
first bars of 2015’s Find a Way to Care
- squalling harmonica and tumbling keys aplenty – it is clear that Mayall
remains a truly spirited musician, and a consummate performer.
From the 2nd to the 4th November,
Mayall will be playing two shows a night at Ronnie Scott’s: the first at 7:30,
and the second at the rather more foolhardy hour of 10:15.
