In The Press:

"The founder of Traffic is self-effacing to the point of seeming shy yet is arguably the more talented of the pair, in his own versatile way, playing organ, piano and guitar with elegant and soulful facility. The ghostly atmosphere Winwood generated with his singing throughout much of the show became a hush over the arena audience with his almost-whispered take on Traffic's "No Face No Name No Number," that seemingly ageless voice gently and gracefully traversing the contours of its exquisite melody."
--Doug Collette, All About Jazz [Full Review]

"The fact that two old friends in their fifties backed by a band only put together for these three gigs could accomplish this is astounding. It's as much a testament to the band as it is an example of how music can withstand the ravages of time if tapped into under the right conditions. Having two masters like Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood together created a rare, once-in-a-lifetime magical experience, comprised as much from loving brotherhood as from musical excellence."
--Michael Peranteau, JamBase
